Testing Policies, Materials, Results
CTECS retains all information regarding this assessment, which includes all test items.
All assessment participants are using CTECS testing services and do not have any ownership over the assessment materials/items or testing platform.
Please follow all test site administrator procedures or proctor procedures, as assigned.
During assessment administration, test takers are prohibited from
- looking at another student's computer screen
- opening another browser window
- receiving content-related assistance from anyone.
If the proctor identifies any cheating, testing irregularities, or abnormalities They are REQUIRED to contact CTECS immediately at 404-994-6535.
CTECS takes assessment security seriously. CTECS performs internal audits of all assessments to identify cheating, testing irregularities, or abnormalities. Any student found to be cheating will be reported to the test site administrator and automatically given a zero on the assessment. The student will then be subject to the cheating policy of the school and or school district.
Allow six business days between the day that you purchase the assessments and register the students, and the day that testing begins at your site.
The assessment may be taken by a student once per school year. If the students fails the assessment, the student may be registered to take up to two Retakes. (See Retake Policy).
The cost of each test is $40. One Retake is included in the $40 test charge. Any additional Retakes are $40. Test tickets are good for two years from the date of purchase.
CTECS allows up to two Retakes per student per year. Retakes require a minumum 14 (calendar) day waiting period from taking the previous assessment. This minimum waiting period is also required between Retakes.
Once the test site administrator has been registered, testing can begin. The testing window is open year round. TSAs do not need to schedule a testing date with CTECS. The test, however, must take place Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m.– 6:00 p.m. (EST) to assure live technical assistance. If testing needs to occur outside of this timeframe, please call CTECS to make special arrangements.

- BPS Maritime Proctor Guide and Checklist
- Student Directions

- Using Your E-SESS Admin Account
Each document contains the necessary information to make sure testing runs smoothly. Each document is critical and must be reviewed by the Test Site Administrator.
