|Payment for mailing an extra score report|
|Payment for answer sheet re-evaluation|
Within 45 days of the test date, around the date that the score is reported to academic institutions, you will be able to check your score by logging on to the NITE website with the personal details (ID number or foreign passport number, and password) with which you are registered on the website. Your score will also be emailed to you. If you opted out of email notification, the score will be sent by mail.
Within three months of the test date you may request an additional copy of the score report to be mailed to you free of charge.
The report includes the following details:
- Score in each of the two sections: knowledge and comprehension of statistics and research methods, and comprehension of scientific texts in psychology.
- General MITAM score, calculated as a weighted average of the scores in the two sections.
Every report is accompanied by an Explanatory Leaflet.
The scores for all examinees on a particular date are calculated simultaneously. It is not possible to report any one examinee’s scores before others’.
NITE does not report scores by telephone or fax.
There is a fee for sending an additional copy of the score report to examinees. You may request this from the Scoring Department by telephone or by downloading the Credit Card Payment Form. Save the form to your computer and send it as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact the Scoring Department by telephone the day after submitting the request to confirm that the request has been received.
NITE allows the re-evaluation of test booklets. There is a service charge for re-evaluation, but if the re-evaluation confirms that an error had occurred, this charge will be refunded. Past experience shows that errors are extremely unlikely. If you want to request a re-evaluation of your test booklets, you can do so by telephoning the Scoring Department, or via the downloadable Credit Card Payment for Answer Sheet Re-evaluation form. Save the form to your computer and send it as an email attachment to email@example.com. Please contact the Scoring Department by telephone the day after submitting the request to confirm that the request has been received. Requests for test booklet re-evaluation may be made up to three months following the test date. We will respond within seven working days after the request and payment have been received.
Note that the re-evaluation does not include a reassessment of the open questions, but only a check that the evaluation results were entered correctly.
In addition, in every case in which information discovered by or brought to the attention of NITE casts doubt for any reason upon the reliability of any score reported to an examinee, including cases where evidence is uncovered during subsequent tests taken by the examinee, or information is provided to NITE by external sources such as academic institutions, NITE reserves the right - during every test administration date - to freeze or disqualify that score and to summon the examinee to a retest to clarify the matter (and, when relevant, to notify the academic institutions that the score which NITE had previously reported to them has been disqualified).
