All test administrators must abide by these rules in order to protect the integrity and validity of the test and the testing session.

  1. Test materials must be stored in a secure, locked area when not in use and only be handled by the test administrator and authorized personnel.
  2. Students should not be left alone with testing materials at any time.
  3. Test materials should not be reproduced in any way.
  4. Test administrators should not discuss test content or use it for review, practice or demonstration.
  5. Test administrators must be prepared and familiar with test directions before entering any test session.
  6. Test administrators must follow the written test administration procedures included in the Directions for Administration and adhere to any time constraints based on the guidelines of the test.
  7. Test administrators must return all the materials via a traceable shipping method to Seton Testing Services after the testing session.
