Taking the ISEE Online at a Prometric Testing Center

(Applicants to Grades 5-12)

The ISEE is now available online around the corner and around the globe, allowing more families greater options to meet schools’ application deadlines. Educational Records Bureau has forged a one-of-a-kind partnership with Prometric (a subsidiary of ETS) that provides testing alternatives for families applying from a remote location, either domestic or international. Prometric also provides a testing option for a family wanting to take the ISEE Online when, for example, a school may not have sufficient computers for  large group administration of ISEE Online.  Prometric has testing offices in over 400 cities in both the US and abroad.  Registration for an ISEE Online at a Prometric Testing Center.

A family must first register their student with Educational Records Bureau in order to arrange to take an ISEE Online at a Prometric Testing Center. The family will then receive a notice from Prometric confirming the date of the test, the level of the ISEE Online, the time, and the location of the test site.  Only applicants to Grades 5-12 have the option to test at a Prometric test center.
