Requesting a Rescore

For paper-based testing, answer documents for multiple-choice questions are scored by computer using a process that is virtually error free. However, if you believe that an error has been made, you may request a rescore of your multiple-choice answer document.

Please note, the rescoring service for multiple-choice questions is not available for computer-based tests.

All constructed-response assignments are scored according to standardized procedures. Scorers with relevant professional backgrounds are oriented to these procedures and are carefully monitored during scoring sessions. As part of the scoring process, constructed-response assignments are scored by multiple scorers and, therefore, have essentially already been rescored. However, an additional rescoring service is available only for the Writing subtest of the Professional Readiness Examination. If you wish to have your essays for the Professional Readiness Examination Writing subtest reevaluated, you may request a rescore of your essays. Written constructed-response assignments for the world language tests cannot be rescored.

A request for rescoring must be made in writing and must include your name, the last four digits of your social security number, the test date, and the test name and code. See "Test Fees and Payment Policies" for information about the rescoring fee. Payment for rescoring must be made by personal check, cashier's check, or money order. Your written request and the correct payment must be mailed to Evaluation Systems and postmarked within one year of the score report date.

In the event that the rescoring process results in a score alteration, you will be issued a corrected score report, the rescoring fee will be refunded, and your records will be updated. If the original score is confirmed, you will be sent a letter indicating that the score has been confirmed. In this case, your rescoring fee will not be refunded.
