ISEE Test Locations
How to Choose the ISEE Test Location
Before you register for the ISEE exam, you must review all the details regarding ISEE test locations. Thereafter, your choice of a suitable ISEE test location will be made easier. This article concentrates on the key aspects regarding ISEE test locations, thus helping you decide on a test location that is convenient to you and your child.
The 4 Key Things to Review While Choosing ISEE test locations:
Types of ISEE Test Locations
There are 3 kinds of ISEE test locations; namely, ERB Testing offices, Group and Individual test sites, where your child could take the ISEE test. Each of these types of testing locations is described as follows:
ERB Testing Offices: ERB's main testing office is located in New York and there are other testing offices across the U.S. and the world. Small Group or Individual tests may be scheduled at these testing offices. Apart from its own offices, ERB has recently partnered with Prometric Inc. (a subsidiary of the ETS organization) to provide several convenient Prometric ISEE test locations across the globe. At Prometric offices, the ISEE test can be taken only as a computer-based test. It must also be noted that these centers are not dedicated for ISEE applicants only, but for applicants of various admission and assessment tests. The advantages of Prometric centers are greater flexibility in test schedules and more number of test locations (therefore, greater availability of seats).
Group Test Sites: These are test locations wherein a group of schools come together to provide a common testing environment and framework for the ISEE applicants, who are applying to one or more of the participating schools. Hence, these ISEE test locations (aka Consortium test centers) provide "Large group tests", wherein a large number of students will take the test at a particular time.
Individual Test Sites: Some charter and private schools conduct ISEE tests in their own campus and such centers are referred to as Individual Test sites. These ISEE test locations are further categorized as "Open" or "Closed" test sites, depending on whether they allow students from other schools to take the test at their campus or not. Such testing sites may have limited testing windows or dates in an academic year and hence, the availability of seats in these sites is also limited.
To get a list of the above-mentioned ISEE test locations, along with their contact details, you may review the ISEE Student guide at - http://erblearn.org/uploads/media_items/isee-student-guide-2012-2013.original.pdf.
The ISEE test locations follow different testing schedules, since ERB does not mandate a uniform testing schedule across all of them. Hence, the testing dates and availability of seats in each test location may vary greatly based on their individual rules and registration deadlines. However, every test location will generally have a fixed schedule and associated registration deadlines that will be published either in the ISEE student guide or will be available upon request. It is important to note that during registration, the testing date will always be allotted on a first-cum-first basis and hence, the date that you have requested will be awarded to you based on the availability of seats.
Geography of ISEE Test Locations:
In the U.S, there are currently about 10 ERB testing locations located in the states of New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Texas, Connecticut and Florida. Apart from this, ERB testing offices are located in 3 international locations; namely, South Korea, China and Turkey. Moreover, dozens of Prometric centers are available in the U.S and across the globe. There are scores of consortium and individual test centers available in key cities across the different states in the U.S. Hence, finding ISEE test locations that are near your town or city should not be a very difficult task.
The parents of students who have a learning or physical challenge must consider ISEE test locations that provide special arrangements. Most ERB testing offices provide special accommodations upon request. For a list of test centers that offer these facilities, you may refer to the ISEE student guide. It is important to request for these arrangements during registration and provide all the supporting documentation on time, so that you may get an appointment without any further delay.
Fees and Test Format
The fees structure and test format (paper-based or computer-based) may vary across ISEE test locations. Hence, you must be sure to review this information from the ISEE student guide or by directly contacting the test locations of your choice.
Thus far, we have reviewed all the key aspects regarding ISEE test locations. Reviewing these key considerations will help you choose the right ISEE test location for your child. Before you go ahead with the registration, be sure to verify all the information regarding the test center of your choice to avoid any last minute glitches.
