Canceling or Voiding of Test Scores
Canceling Your Test Score
If after taking a paper-based test you do not want your scores reported or you feel that you did not perform as well as you could have, you may cancel your test scores. Evaluation Systems will cancel your scores upon receipt of
- a completed Score Cancellation Form (available at the test site); or
- a written request (include your name, your signature, the last five digits of your social security number, your GACE identification number, your date of birth, the test date, and the tests for which you wish to have your scores canceled).
Your cancellation request must be received at Evaluation Systems within seven days of the date on which you took the test. If you choose to cancel your scores, you will not receive a refund or credit of any kind.
If you request that your scores be canceled, your test performance will not be reported to you, to the GaPSC, or to any educator preparation program provider or employing agency. Your scores will not be entered into any GACE records; therefore, after the cancellation of your scores, you will not be able to have your scores reported for any purpose.
Voiding of Test Scores by the GaPSC or Evaluation Systems
If you violate one of the Rules of Test Participation or if doubts are raised about the validity or legitimacy of your registration or your scores, Evaluation Systems will notify the GaPSC and other parties as deemed appropriate by the GaPSC.
Evaluation Systems takes reasonable security precautions in developing and administering GACE tests and in processing test scores. The GaPSC and Evaluation Systems reserve the right to void your scores if, in their sole opinion, there is adequate reason to question your scores' validity or legitimacy, due to misconduct (including, but not limited to, a violation of the rules set forth in the current registration bulletin, including the Rules of Test Participation, and the rules communicated to you, orally or in writing, at the test administration) or to circumstances within or beyond your control.
Further action may be taken, including denying, revoking, and/or suspending certification. Other actions, as described in Rule 1 of the Rules of Test Participation, may be taken as deemed appropriate by the GaPSC and/or Evaluation Systems. Violation of the Rules of Test Participation may be a violation of the Georgia Code of Ethics for Educators and may be grounds for denial, revocation, or suspension of Georgia educator certification.
