How to be considered as a stand-by candidate if you are not able to register:
If registration is closed, your only option is to be considered as a stand-by tester.
You must complete ALL
of the following to be considered:
1) You must obtain a letter from your academic advisor with the following information and bring it with you to the test center: the sections you need to take and all previous test(s) taken and scores received.
2) You must
report to the location of the exam by 7:30 a.m. the day of the exam.
3) Stand-by candidates will be called for and you will need to present yourself with your letter at that time.
IF you do not appear by 7:30 a.m., you will not be allowed to test that day.
The ELPE may only be taken once every three months. Under specific circumstances, you may request a retest within that three month period. To get permission to retest, you will need to do the following:
Go to your departmental graduate advisor. Ask that person to request a retest through the Office of Graduate Studies.
If your departmental graduate advisor agrees, he/she should write a letter to Dr. Butler-Purry in the Office of Graduate Studies requesting a retest. Requests should include the student's name, UIN, reason for retest request, most recent test date and score(s). Requests must be sent to Dr. Butler-Purry no later than the Thursday before the week of the exam (i.e. SEVEN BUSINESS DAYS).
If Dr. Butler-Purry approves the retest, the Office of Graduate Studies will notify Data and Research Services of your approval for the retest. Retest approvals must be received by Measurement & Research Services no later than the Friday before the week of the exam (i.e. SIX BUSINESS DAYS) before the exam so that these students can be included in the schedule which is emailed to students the Wednesday before the exam (i.e. THREE BUSINESS DAYS) before the exam.
If you have received permission to retest you must bring either a copy of the e-mail from OGS stating you have been approved or a copy of the memo with Dr. Butler-Purry's signature.
You MUST have approval from the Office of Graduate Studies to re-test. If you test without permission, you will be charged for the test, but your test will not be scored.
You are responsible for checking your eligibility to retest for the ELPE. You will notbe notified by ODRS If you need permission or if you are not eligible to test. Students who register and are ineligible or need permission will be deleted from the roster and will not be admitted on exam day.
The Office of Graduate Studies uses the following guidelines to determine eligibility for retesting:
The student needs the re-test to qualify as a GAT (teaching assistant) or to graduate in the coming semester AND
The student has two or fewer areas remaining AND
The student scored at least 75 in the areas not passed.
