Test Administration Training

All test day staff are required to complete spring 2024 test administration training which covers important topics on how to prepare for a digital administration. Self-paced, online training modules are available through our online learning system about 4–6 weeks before the start of the testing window. Test coordinators will get an email when it's available and should notify test day staff. You'll need a College Board professional account to sign in and can create one if you don't already have one.

While the training covers all assessments in the SAT Suite, testing staff can tailor the content to the assessments they'll be administering. The entire course can be completed in just over an hour, and experienced testing staff who have already administered digital SAT Suite assessments can condense the content even further.

Note: This is the only online training staff are required to complete to prepare for their administration; any webinars you may receive invitations for are optional.

Use the information below to learn more about the required training, including what's covered, who should complete it and when, and other important notes.

Timeline

Test coordinators should complete the Test Coordinator Planning section of their training as soon as they can after training opens, which is about four to 6 weeks before the testing window opens. All test day staff should plan to complete their training at least one to two weeks before test day. Your progress will be saved so you don't have to complete the training in one sitting. Once the training is completed, you'll be able to print a certificate of completion. You'll also be able to log back in and review the training at any time.
