- A condition or circumstance believed to have caused a misinterpretation of the testing results, (for example, an incorrect birthdate or grade level used in calculation of the student’s score).
- An extraordinary circumstance occurred during the testing period that may negatively affect the validity of the test results (such as a death in the family or extreme physical ailment) this must be communicated to the district office in writing within two weeks of the end of district testing window.
- The suspicion of an error in the administration of the assessment.
- A misapplication or miscalculation of the scores by the selection committee.
Appeals submitted for reasons other than above will be denied without further consideration. No outside testing will be considered. The decision of the Appeal Review Team is final.
