Account Setup and Ordering
Even though CTECS TSAs are complimentary (unless using the Fully Automated Testing method), a Purchaser's Contract is still required. This will ultimately provide you with a contract number which you will use to complete your Test Site Administrator Registration and Agreement form. It is only necessary to set up your account once per school year.
For the CTECS Workplace Readiness Skills Assessment and Technical Skills Assessments administered using the Fully Automated Testing method, for which purchase is required, there are two options; the Purchaser's Contract is strongly preferred. If you must use the PO method, please do not complete the Purchaser's Contract. Purchasers are invoiced for the tests with associated costs that were taken during the monthly billing period.
All of the major credit cards may be used to pay for CTECS assessments. Please follow the procedures below to pay for assessments using a credit card.
- Set up your account by submitting the online webform, as usual.
- Request an invoice provided with a link to pay by credit card.
- Call/email Dana Wilson at CTECS (404-994-6536 / email@example.com) to request the linked invoice or to directly process your order. Please note that there will be a 3 percent fee charged for each credit card transaction/invoice total. If you would like to reduce the fee to just $0.50 per invoice/transaction, have Dana set up an ACH payment. The standard option of paying by check is still available.
Option 1 (strongly preferred) : Complete and Submit the Purchaser's Contract webform.
Note: The contract must be completed by the appropriate person responsible for ordering and/or payment for the assessments.
After you complete and submit the form, you will receive an email response with a contract number. The contract number is required for completing and submitting the Test Site Administrator and Student Registration form, which are the next steps in the process.
If you have questions about the contract, please contact Dana Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org (404-679-4501 Ext. 3543). Additional questions should be sent to Ken Potthoff, email@example.com, 404-994-6538, Darren Morris, firstname.lastname@example.org, 804-543-6094, or Robyn Marshall, email@example.com, 404-994-6534.
Option 2: Submit a Purchase Order (PO)
One PO per school or division should be used for assessment purchases for the entire school year.
Once the PO is received and processed, a contract number will be sent. The contract number is required for test site administrator and student registration, so it should be provided to the test site administrator(s) immediately after receipt.
Please make the purchase order payable to the Career and Technical Education Consortium of States (CTECS). POs may be faxed or mailed to Dana Wilson; please do not send duplicates. Fax it to 404-492-5396 or mail it to CTECS, Attn: Dana Wilson,1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dana Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org (404-679-4501 Ext. 3543).
