The registration, user account, and score reporting services on this website will be temporarily unavailable on Tuesday, September 26, between 7:45 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Eastern time, for system maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Retake Policy

Examinees who do not pass a test or subtest may retake that test or subtest. If you wish to retake a test, you must complete the registration process again. Retake policies depend on the test you have taken, and are shown below.

ILTS Tests You must wait 30 days before taking the test again.
Gifted Education (NES®) Test You must wait 30 days before taking the test again.
Test of Academic Proficiency When you register for the Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP), you may register for a single subtest or for the entire test. If you take the complete TAP (all four subtests) and you do not pass one or more of the subtests or choose not to take one or more subtests during your test session, the earliest appointment you can schedule for a retake of the non-passed or untaken subtest(s) will be 30 days after your test date. If you take a single subtest and do not pass, the earliest appointment you can schedule to retake the same subtest will be 30 days after your test date.

Basic Skills test scores received for tests taken prior to September 11, 2010, cannot be used to fulfill individual subtest passing requirements for the TAP.
