Registration Procedures - YAEL
Reporting Test Scores to the Educational Institutions
Your scores will be reported directly to Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Bar-Ilan University, Haifa University, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv University, the Technion and Ariel University within 45 days of the test date. Your scores will also be reported to the other institutions that you selected on the registration form. The institutions to which NITE can report scores are listed here. NITE does not report test scores to educational institutions other than those listed, or those specified on your registration form. All of the institutions guarantee that the scores will be used solely for their own admissions purposes. The educational institutions process candidates’ applications on the basis of the scores reported directly to them by NITE. Candidates cannot report their scores themselves.
Reporting Test Scores to the Examinee
Within 45 days of the test administration, around the same time the scores are reported to the institutions, your scores will be available on the NITE website. To access your scores, you will need the ID number or foreign passport number with which you registered for the test, and associated password. Your scores will also be emailed to you. If you specified that you did not want your scores reported by email, you will receive them only by mail.
Please note the following points before contacting NITE with regard to your scores:
- All scores for examinees tested on a particular test date are calculated on the same day and no individual score can be issued in advance of this date.
- NITE does not release test scores by telephone or fax.
- An additional copy of test scores can be mailed to examinees at no extra charge for a period of three months following the test administration.
- NITE does not commit to reporting scores to institutions or examinees before the registration deadline for the next test date.
Requests for Changes to Score Reporting
If, after registration, you wish your scores to be reported to different institutions from those indicated during registration, or wish to prevent your scores from being reported to one or more of the institutions, or do not wish to receive them via email, you may request this via NITE’s website (recommended) or by sending an email to the Scoring Department. There is no fee for this service. It is your responsibility to ensure that you receive written confirmation of the request from the Scoring Department.
Requests for Reevaluation of the Test Answer Sheet
Test answer sheets are read by an optical scanner. This method is extremely accurate. Nevertheless, you have the right to request that your answer sheet be reevaluated. The reevaluation is conducted manually. The reevaluation does not include a reassessment of the writing task, but only verifies that all of the scoring details were recorded accurately.
A fee is charged for this procedure. However, if it is discovered that an error did occur in processing the answer sheet, this fee will be refunded.
A request for reevaluation can be submitted via the website or by sending an email to the Scoring Department. You are entitled to request a reevaluation for up to three months after the test date. The results of the reevaluation will be sent to you seven working days after receipt of the request and payment.
Any complaint regarding the test should be addressed in writing to the Customer Relations Bureau via the form available on the website, or by fax or mail within one week of the test date. A complaint received later than this will not be processed. Among other reasons, this is because concerns about the test administration can only be investigated in close proximity to the event.
All correspondence with NITE should specify your name, the ID or foreign passport number with which you registered for the test, type of test and test date.
NITE views very seriously any attempt to compromise the integrity of its tests, including any behavior that infringes on the confidentiality of the test or the use of its results. We also view very seriously any attempt to obtain a score by illegal means, such as copying during the test or impersonating someone else. Among other things, cheating may lead to situations in which unsuitable candidates are accepted, sometimes even at the expense of candidates who are better qualified for the study program in question. The National Institute for Testing and Evaluation has methods for detecting cheating and attempts to compromise test integrity, and reserves the right to react to such situations using all means at its disposal and at its discretion. These may include:
- Invalidating the test
- Prohibiting an examinee from taking any test administered by NITE for a period of 12 months
- Filing a civil suit
- Submitting a complaint to university or college disciplinary committees
Please note: Impersonating another person (such as sending someone to take the test in your place) is a criminal offense. If someone is suspected of committing such an offense, a complaint will be filed with the police and with university disciplinary committees.
During the scoring process, NITE conducts routine checks to ensure that each examinee’s scores accurately reflect his or her ability. One such procedure is comparison of the examinees’ answer sheets. Sometimes these procedures indicate problems such as irregular or inconsistent test results or technical problems.
In the event that the reliability of any test or score is in doubt for any reason, the examinee will be summoned to retake the test at NITE’s offices in Jerusalem, and his or her test scores will be withheld until the matter has been resolved. Only after the examinee is retested will NITE make a decision how to proceed.
A written summons for retesting is generally sent to such examinees within six weeks of the test date; however, it may also be issued at a later date.
Furthermore, in any case where additional information of any kind is discovered or brought to NITE’s attention, which casts doubt on the reliability of any score issued to an examinee, including data relating to subsequent tests taken by the same examinee, and information conveyed to NITE by third parties, including educational institutions, NITE reserves the right to withhold or annul the said score at any time and to summon the examinee for reexamination and investigation (and, if relevant, to inform the educational institutions to which the score was previously reported that it has been annulled).
In addition, in response to any attempt at cheating, copying, or receiving a score through illegal means, NITE has the authority to prohibit the examinee from taking any test it administers for a period of 12 months.
