Hand Scoring: $100

If you're concerned about the accuracy of computerized scoring due to the possibility of your student mis-bubbling an answer, this service will provide a manual review of your child's score sheet. Please know that manual reviews rarely result in score changes.

The SSAT is an undisclosed test so this service won't provide the actual questions or answers. If hand scoring results in a scoring change, the revised results are added to your account and those of all requested score recipients, and all parties are notified. If no change occurs, you will receive a notification letter.

Please allow up to one month for hand-scoring results. The hand-scoring request deadline of August 31 is thirty days after the conclusion of the preceding testing year from August 1 and July 31. Hand scoring is not available for SSAT at Home or Prometric testing.

Rescore Grade (Middle and Upper Level): $40

If an incorrect grade level was selected on the Middle or Upper Level SSAT, this service allows for re-scoring to better reflect your child's abilities. Please allow up to two weeks for rescoring. Updated scores will be made available to the family and all score recipients, and all parties will be notified. Tests may only be rescored within the academic testing year in which they were taken (August 1 - July 31).

  • Once a rescore has been completed, the original score report will be unavailable.
  • Middle Level tests (grades 5-7) can only be rescored to grades 5-7.
  • Upper Level tests (grades 8-11) can only be rescored to grades 8-11.
  • Elementary Level tests cannot be rescored.

The Snapshot measures a student’s preferences, attitudes, and beliefs about their character. It does not measure their behavior and is not an achievement test.

Member schools using The Character Skills Snapshot will receive reports from those parents/guardians who select them as report recipients approximately two weeks following Snapshot completion.

Snapshot Reports summarize results.

There are tons of multi-purpose options.
The Snapshot is meant to complement, not replace, a holistic admissions process that includes information from cognitive tests (such as the SSAT), recommendation letters, interviews, etc.

It is not intended to determine if a student should or should not be admitted. Instead, it offers context to help you better understand the whole student.
