The following instructions are for families and students taking the ISEE at an in-person location (that is not a Prometric Test Center) in the online test format. Test instructions vary depending on your type of test and testing location.
Check in to your test by the check-in time listed in your Verification Letter. This is typically 15 - 30 minutes before the test starts. Give yourself plenty of travel time to avoid any undue anxiety from rushing. Late arrivals are not permitted to test and are responsible for any applicable rescheduling or cancellation fees.
Make sure to bring the following items to the test. Only the items listed below are allowed in the testing room—do not bring any other personal items, including smartwatches or cell phones, into the testing room unless they are approved for use by ERB as a testing accommodation. For more information about our rules and regulations go here.
The test contains timed sections that cover different academic subjects. Timing and subjects will vary by level. Sample tests are available to familiarize your student with the testing platform and types of questions. For additional information about test preparation, go here.
To preserve the integrity of the test and to create a safe and productive testing environment, students who do not adhere to the rules and regulations may be excused from the test. Some personal items are permitted if the student is approved for testing accommodations that allow for the express use of those items.
