Advantages of Participating

You will have the opportunity to gain valuable practice in computer-based testing. For the *acceptable completion of each pilot test form, participants are offered an incentive of either a $90.00 Amazon gift card or a $109.00 test voucher to be used toward future registration fees for an Ohio Assessments for Educators test. Test vouchers are non-transferable and expire one year from the date of issue. Incentives are issued upon verification of the acceptable completion of each pilot test form. Your incentive will be sent to your email address approximately 4-6 weeks after the end of the pilot testing window. You will not receive a score for this pilot test, nor does it count towards licensure.

Other advantages of pilot test participation include:

  • gauging professional knowledge by taking actual test items, and
  • gaining practical testing experience.

* To be eligible for an incentive, participants must be qualified in the specific field for which they are taking a pilot test and they must complete the pilot test form as instructed (participants must answer 25% of the multiple-choice questions correctly and respond to all constructed-response items as directed). You may choose only one incentive per pilot test session and may participate in up to two (2) pilot tests. Additional incentive requests beyond two (2) pilot test sessions will not be honored.

Test Information

Pilot tests are administered in a 120-minute testing session. Approximately 20 minutes of the session are dedicated to the presentation of a computer-based testing tutorial and a short survey.

There is no fee for participating in a pilot test. Eligible participants may complete up to two (2) pilot test forms. The second registration can only be scheduled after the first pilot test session is completed (consecutive pilot test appointments are not available).

Pilot test results will be analyzed as group data only and will be kept confidential. Score information will not be provided to participants or institutions.
