Scores - AMIRAM:

Institutions & Examinees, Reevaluation
|Reporting scores to institutions|
|Payment for mailing an extra score report|
|Payment for answer sheet re-evaluation|
Each educational institution makes its own independent decisions on the basis of examinees’ scores. Typically, the scores are used to determine whether examinees will be required to take courses in English, and if so, at what level.
A particular institution’s decision in response to an examinee’s score will not necessarily be the same as another institution’s decision in response to the same score.
Services offered by the Scoring Department (reporting scores to institutions and examinees, and requests for reevaluation)
We recommend making these requests by logging on to the website. You may also make them by following the instructions below.
Reporting scores to institutions of higher education
If you registered for the test via one of the institutions of higher education, your score will be reported to that institution 7-10 days after you take the test.
If you registered for the test via the NITE website, your score will be reported to the institutions you indicated on your registration form, 7-10 days after you take the test. There is no possibility of shortening the reporting time. The institutions to which the score can be reported are listed here.
Reporting Scores to Examinees
You can access your scores by logging onto the NITE website 7-10 days after you take the test.
Please note: NITE does not report scores to examinees over the telephone or via fax.
After registering for the test via the NITE website, you may request that your score be reported to other institutions of higher education in addition to those you already requested by logging onto the NITE website or by sending an email to the Scoring Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Change requests are free of charge. Please contact the Scoring Department by telephone the day after submitting the request in order to confirm that it has been received.
If you registered via an institution of higher education, you will be able to report your scores to other institutions about seven days after taking the test by submitting a request in writing to the Scoring Department.
The computer program used for the AMIRAM is highly reliable and errors in calculating scores are extremely rare. Nonetheless, NITE allows examinees to request a reevaluation of their test file. There is a service charge for reevaluation, but if the reevaluation confirms that an error occurred, this charge will be fully refunded. You may request a reevaluation of your test file by logging onto the NITE website or by sending an email to the Scoring Department at email@example.com. This request must be submitted within three months of taking the test. NITE will send you the results of the reevaluation within seven work days of receiving the request and the service charge.
