Make sure that your e-mail security settings allow e-mails from the College Board. You will receive two e-mail order confirmations:
- A notification that your order has been successfully submitted.
- A follow-up notification will be sent in mid-August. This notification will contain further information about bulk registration and contain your bulk registration access codes.
Please retain these e-mails for your records.
The 2013-14 ReadiStep test fee is $8 per answer sheet scored. Customers outside the United States will incur a $3 shipping surcharge per test shipped.
An unused test fee of $3 will be applied for each test ordered that exceeds 20 percent of the total used. In other words, customers that use at least 80 percent of the tests they order will not incur an unused test fee. Unused test books cannot be returned for a refund.
Unused test fee example:
A school orders 100 tests. There is no charge for 20 unused tests (20% of 100). If the school returns 80 answer sheets for scoring, there is no unused test charge. If the school returns 50 answer sheets for scoring, there will be a $90 additional charge for the 30 unused tests beyond the 20 free unused tests.
ReadiStep invoices will be generated and mailed to customers in January, after all participation counts are finalized.
Bulk registration allows schools and districts to submit student information electronically and securely before the test administration. This process produces Pre-Identification (Pre-ID) labels for students’ answer documents, eliminating the need for students to fill in their identifying information on test day.
Once your order for ReadiStep test materials has been processed, an e-mail with access codes for the bulk registration tool will be sent to the billing contact provided on your order. The e-mail will contain access codes for each of the institutions included on your order. Follow the instructions in the e-mail to begin loading your student data.
