indicated on your admission ticket.
You must bring the following to your test appointment:
Review the testing policies about arriving

Taking the Test
The test session provides enough time for pre-administration activities and test
completion. Even though you may finish testing before the ending time of the test session, you should plan to use the entire session time.
Please note that you will be allowed no more than the allotted time to complete the test.
- Complete pre-administration activities, including identity verification procedures
such as having your photo taken and your palm scanned.
- If you are wearing eyeglasses, you may be asked during the check-in process to remove them for a visual inspection. Please note that the test center proctor will not touch or otherwise handle your glasses.
- Place all personal items, including any
into the secure storage provided.
- Receive an erasable notepad and pen from the test proctor.
- Complete a tutorial on how to take a computer-based test, including how to record
your responses to multiple-choice questions and performance components.
- After you sign in at the test center, you will be presented with a nondisclosure agreement on the computer. It will ask you to indicate your agreement to the conditions set forth
on the current website, including the Important Testing Information and Agreement to the Testing Rules
and the rules communicated to you orally or in writing at the test administration. You will have five minutes
to read and accept the terms of this nondisclosure agreement. If you do not respond within five minutes,
or if you indicate that you do not accept the terms of the agreement, your test session will
terminate, you will not be permitted to test, you will receive no refund or credit of any kind, and you will be required
to wait 31 calendar days before you can retake the test.
- You may take restroom breaks. For most tests, the time you take for breaks is counted as part of your testing time. A scheduled 15-minute break is provided to examinees taking one of the following subtest combinations:
two or more subtests of the FELE, three or more subtests of Prekindergarten/Primary PK–3 or Elementary Education K–6,
or all four subtests of the General Knowledge Test. The scheduled breaks for these aforementioned tests do not count against an examinee's testing time.
- You may not communicate with other examinees or unauthorized persons either in person
or by communication device.
- You will be monitored continuously and may also be videotaped.
- If you require assistance, raise your hand and notify test center staff. Please note that test center staff cannot answer questions about or discuss test content with you.
- You will not lose any testing time if your computer freezes. If this or other problems
occur, you will resume testing where you stopped once the issue is resolved.
- At the conclusion of testing, your test materials will be collected and you will
be dismissed from the test session.
- Once you have been dismissed, you must leave the test site.
- If you have a test appointment later in the day, return to the test site 30 minutes
before your next appointment.
