Directions for Administering Exams

When you purchase an exam from ACS Exams, you are allowed to use it in the manner that works for your classroom. The only constraint is that you maintain all appropriate security directives for exam administration. If you wish to take advantage of the norm-reference data, however, additional guidelines are required to make sure students have essentially the same conditions for taking the exam.

Follow the directions below when administering examinations with the intention of contributing to the data pool for national norms or with the intention of comparing your students' performances to that of the overall norming population.
