For all students testing December 14, 2020 or later, a parent or guardian is required to submit a Testing Experience Statement as soon as possible after the test is completed. This statement enables the parent or guardian to indicate if any irregularities (problems that may have occurred during the test administration) interfered with the student’s ability to complete the test. Scores for each test will not be released to the family or score recipients if a statement is not completed. This applies to all modes of testing — on paper, at Prometric and SSAT at Home. To complete the statement:
*If a parent or guardian indicates an irregularity impacted their student, they must also immediately email email@example.com complete details. Scores for the test will not be released until further review can be completed.
For any test impacted by an irregularity, EMA will work with the family and test center, if applicable, to understand the nature of the irregularity and EMA will determine whether the test scores are valid. If test scores are deemed to be invalid, scores will not be released and the student will be provided a free retest at no charge.
SSAT at Home
SSAT at Home scores are typically released to schools 3 business days following the first Sunday after the test date. If the test takes place on a Sunday, that day is considered the first Sunday. Scores are released to families on the day after they are released to schools.
It is important to note that some SSAT at Home dates may have a special reporting schedule other than what is listed above. Any special notes will be listed on the SSAT at Home test date calendar or listed here.*
SSAT at Prometric
SSAT scores from Prometric testing are released weekly. For tests taken from each Tuesday through the following Monday, scores are released to schools the Thursday following the Monday ending the scoring period. Scores are released to families on the day after they are released to schools.*
Paper-Based SSAT (Standard or Flex)
Most paper-based scores are typically released to schools and families within two weeks of the test date. Scores are released to families on the day after they are released to schools.
* Note: While the typical score release is indicated above, The Association will report scores to you and all score recipients that you designated within two weeks of the test administration.
Score alerts are available via email or text for an additional fee (see fees below). Note: This is not a rush scoring service; scores will still be released on the common release date. Order score alerts via the parent/guardian SSAT account.
There are a variety of options for students and families to access SSAT scores. These services may be viewed and ordered directly through the parent SSAT account.
Use the parent SSAT account to send scores to schools, including adding and/or cancelling scores (cancellations must be requested prior to score release).

Notification via text or email when scores are released. With this alert, you will receive a text or email that includes basic score information the moment it is available! For the full score report, access your account online. This is not a rush scoring service; scores will still be released on the common release date.
A student's SSAT writing sample is released only to schools to which the score report is sent. For an additional $20 fee, the student's writing sample will also be made available to the student/family online via the parent SSAT account.
NOTE: Not available for the Elementary Level SSAT.
If you are concerned about the accuracy of the computerized scoring or the possibility of student mis-bubbling, you may request that the answer sheet be reviewed by hand. This service can be ordered online through the parent's SSAT account. Please note that it has been our experience that few, if any, hand scores result in a score change.
The SSAT is an undisclosed test; consequently, hand scoring service will not provide you with the actual questions or answers from the test. However, in the event that scores change as a result of hand scoring, revised scores will be uploaded to your account and all requested score recipients. If no change occurs, we will send a letter to that effect. Please allow up to one month for hand scoring results. Tests may only be hand scored until the August 31st following the testing season (August 1 - July 31) in which the test was taken.
NOTE: Handscoring is not available for the SSAT at Home or an SSAT at a Prometric test center.
If your student indicated the wrong grade level on the Middle or Upper Level SSAT, you may ask to have the test re-scored to more accurately reflect your child's abilities. To request a rescore to a different grade, please order online through the parent SSAT account. Please allow up to two weeks for rescoring. Updated scores will be made available to the family and all score recipients. Tests may only be rescored within the academic testing year in which they were taken (August 1 - July 31).
If your student indicated the wrong gender on the Elementary, Middle or Upper Level SSAT, you may request their test be rescored according to a different gender. Additionally, if a student now identifies with a different gender, your student's score report can be rescored. There is no charge for rescores due to gender. Request rescores due to gender by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow up to two weeks for rescoring. Updated scores will be made available to the family and all score recipients.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
