requests, view approved accommodations, and view test appointments through your ETS account. Additionally, if you are approved for
certain accommodations (extended time; extended breaks; screen magnification; and/or selectable foreground and background colors),
you may also self-schedule your test through your ETS account. If you are seeking one or more accommodations besides the four
listed above, you can also indicate your preferred SLS test date and location online through your ETS account portal. To begin the
accommodation process, create or log in to your Praxis/SLS account, click on “Praxis Accommodation Status/New Request” under the
“Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-Related Needs” section on the home page, and follow the instructions.
The Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-Related Needs contains information on eligibility,
a list of some of the accommodations ETS most frequently approves and provides, contact information, procedures for requesting
testing accommodations, and forms. The Supplement should be used in conjunction with the information in this Bulletin

ABOUT THE SCHOOL LEADERSHIP SERIES ASSESSMENTS
The School Leadership Series consists of these assessments — the
School Leaders Licensure Assessment, the Kentucky Specialty
Test of Instructional and Administrative Practices, the School
Superintendent Assessment and the Connecticut Administrator Test.
The Kentucky Specialty Test of Instructional and Administrative
Practices is given by computer continuously throughout the year. The
School Leaders Licensure Assessment, the School Superintendent
Assessment and the Connecticut Administrator Test are delivered by
computer and are offered several times throughout the year. These
tests were developed to provide a thorough, fair, and carefully
validated assessment for states to use as part of the licensure
process for principals, superintendents, and school leaders. These
tests reflect the most current research and professional judgment
and experience of educators across the country, and they are based
on both a national job analysis study and a set of standards for
school leaders identified by the Interstate School Leaders Licensure
Consortium (ISLLC). Please note: the School Leadership Series
exams are administered in English only.
Testing Requirements
Each state agency that uses a School Leadership Series assessment
determines its assessment needs for principals, superintendents,
and other school leaders based on legislated requirements
and/or state policy. Typically, the agency assembles a panel of
principals, superintendents, other school leaders, and educational
administration professors as appropriate to rev
iew the test
specifications and make an initial determination of whether the
assessment is appropriate for meeting that agency’s goals. The
test is then reviewed and validated for that state. If you are not
sure you have the latest information regarding state licensing
requirements, check with the Department of Education or
Educational Licensure Board in the state where you plan to work.
Passing Scores
Each state choosing to use School Leadership Series assessments as
part of the requirements for licensure of principals, superintendents,
or other school leaders will determine a “passing” score that the state
will apply to all test takers who wish to obtain a license.
To set a passing score, states must abide by rigorous industry
standards to ensure that the score is appropriate and fair. The score is
set by a panel of approximately 14 experts — most of whom are either
principals, superintendents, or other school leaders — from diverse
school backgrounds.
The panel reviews numerous examples of test takers’ responses
over the course of two days and works collaboratively to arrive at an
appropriate passing score. The final decision is informed by the vision
of school leadership embodied in the ISLLC Standards, as well as an
awareness of the impact selection of various passing scores will have
on the passing rate of the test taker population.

We will keep your information as required to meet the following
requirements:
Protect against fraud, theft, and misrepresentation by unauthorized
test takers

ON TEST DAY
Identification (ID) Requirements
All test takers are responsible for bringing valid and acceptable
identification each time they report to a test center. It is your
responsibility to ensure that your ID documents are up-to-date and
available on the day of the test. If you do not present acceptable ID,
you will not be permitted to test and you will forfeit your test fee.
Your ID requirements depend on your country of citizenship and
where you plan to test. Please read the specific section for acceptable
primary and supplemental ID documents and allowed exceptions.
You are responsible for ensuring that the first and last name you
used to register exactly matches the name on the ID document(s)
you will present at the test center.
If your name has changed since you registered for a test, you
must ensure that you have appropriate ID matching the name on
your registration to show at the test center. It is recommended
that you have ID in the correct name BEFORE you complete the
registration process. Additionally, you must create a new online SLS
account providing your name exactly as it appears on the primary
identification you will present on test day. During the creation of
your new account, we advise that you leave the Social Security
number (SSN) field blank to avoid technical issues. After the new
account is created, you will have the opportunity to enter your SSN
by clicking the “Update Personal or Contact Information” link.
If the test administrator questions the ID you present, you may
be required to provide supplemental ID. If positive confirmation
cannot be made, you may not be permitted to test or your test
score may be withheld.
All test takers are encouraged to bring at least two forms of
acceptable ID each time they report to a test center. Prior
admission to a test center based on a given ID document does
not assure that that document will be considered acceptable. Test
centers are not required to hold your seat if you leave the center to
obtain acceptable identification.
Admission to the test center does not assure that the ID you provided
is valid or that your scores will be reported. All reported cases of
questionable ID are subject to review and approval by the ETS Office
of Testing Integrity either during or after the test administration.
ETS reserves the right to withhold and/or cancel scores in the event
that the ID requirements set forth herein are not met.
You may be required to show your ID and/or to sign a test center
log at various points throughout the test administration.
Your test fees will not be refunded if you are not permitted to test
or if your scores are withheld or canceled because of invalid or
unacceptable ID.
MULTIPLE-PART LAST NAME
If the ID document you will present on the day of the test contains a
multiple-part last name, your admission ticket must exactly match
your ID. You cannot use a supplemental ID to resolve last name
discrepancies.
ID DOCUMENT REQUIREMENTS
With few exceptions, ID documents must meet all of the following
requirements. Each ID document must:
be an original document; photocopied documents are not acceptable
and documents cannot be presented on a cell phone or any other
electronic device

Test Center Procedures and Regulations
GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR TEST DAY
Test-related information written on ID documents, clothing and
footwear, or on any part of the body is prohibited.
Test centers do not have large waiting areas. Friends or relatives
who accompany you to the test center will not be permitted to wait
in the test center or be in contact with you while you are taking the
test, including during breaks. Except for ETS-authorized observers,
visitors are not allowed in the testing room while testing is in
progress or during breaks.
ID verification at registration, and/or check-in at the test center may
include:
- Biometric voice and photo identification
- Fingerprinting/thumbprinting
- Video surveillance
- Signature comparison
If you refuse to participate, you may not be permitted to test and you
will forfeit your test fees. This is in addition to the requirement that
you present acceptable and valid identification.
ETS respects individuals’ privacy and has implemented procedures
to ensure that the check-in process is completed in a respectful
manner. ETS reserves the right to ensure the security of test
content by using electronic detection scanning devices (e.g.,
hand-held metal detectors/wands) and may also employ additional
security measures such as visual inspections for unauthorized
testing aids or other wearable technology. Test takers should be
prepared to undergo these security measures to ensure a fair
testing environment. Failure to comply may result in dismissal
from the test and forfeiture of your test fees.
To ensure unauthorized aids are not brought into the testing room,
additional visual inspections of clothing, footwear, and ID
documents may also be conducted. You may also be required to
remove your eyeglasses for close visual inspection. These
inspections will be done at check-in and upon return from breaks.
Unless an inspection is required for use or possession of an
unauthorized aid during the test session, removal of footwear is
prohibited in the testing room.
Personal items other than ID documents are not allowed in the
testing room. This includes any phones, tablets, all watches,
wearable technology, and any other electronic, recording, listening,
scanning or photographic devices. If you are seen using or accessing
any of these electronic devices and/or transmitting data, including
but not limited to text messaging, email and photographs, your
device may be inspected and/or confiscated. You may not access
your phone during the test, during breaks to check messages, make
a call, check the time or for any other reason.
Jewelry is prohibited, except for wedding and engagement rings. Do
not wear other jewelry to the test center.
Clothing and other personal items that include, but are not limited
to, hair accessories, neckties, bowties, hats, scarves, jackets and
outerwear are subject to inspection by the test center
administrator. Refrain from wearing such items as tie clips, cuff
links, ornate clips, combs, barrettes, headbands and other hair
accessories on test day, as you may be prohibited from wearing
them in the testing room.
Before the test, you will receive instructions from test center staff
regarding where to store personal items. You will not have access
to your personal items during the test administration except for
food, beverages and medication, which may be accessed during a
break.

ON TEST DAY
(continued)
If you fail to follow the instructions of the test center staff, you will
not be permitted to test and your test fee will not be refunded. Any
violation of these procedures during the test or during breaks may
result in dismissal from the test center and/or cancellation of your
test scores.
Test centers and ETS assume no responsibility for personal items
including watches, jewelry or devices that you choose to bring to
the test center.
The test administrator will assign you a seat.
On occasion, weather conditions or other circumstances beyond
the test administrator’s or ETS’s control may require a delayed
start or the rescheduling of your test.
You may be asked to empty your pockets, raise your pant legs
above your ankles, pull up your sleeves above your wrists for
visual inspection, and you may be scanned with a hand-held metal
detector wand. Such inspections are routine prior to each entry
into the testing room. You may request that the inspections be
performed by a staff member of the same gender and/or in an
area sheltered from the view of other people. Test center staff will
make every effort to accommodate such requests, but ETS cannot
guarantee that all test centers will have the necessary staff and
space available.
ETS reserves the right to take appropriate action and/or
notify appropriate authorities including, but not limited to,
law enforcement authorities, if a test taker responds in a
threatening or disturbing way to essay or speaking questions
or communicates with E
TS either verbally or in writing in a
threatening or disturbing manner.
ETS takes test security very seriously. Although tests are administered
under strict supervision and security measures, testing irregularities
may sometimes occur. Please contact E
TS as soon as possible to
report any irregular behavior that is either observed or reported
to you — for example, someone copying from another test taker,
taking a test for someone else, having access to test questions
before the exam, or using notes or unauthorized aids. All information
will be held in strictest confidence. Reports of cheating or fraud will
be investigated thoroughly and offenders may be prosecuted to the
full extent of the law.

DURING THE TEST
The following procedures and regulations apply during the entire
test session, which begins at sign-in, ends at sign-out, and
includes breaks.
Bring your admission ticket and ID with you to the testing center.
Your admission ticket is important because it contains the test
center address and reporting time on test day. While you are not
required to present it at the test center, test center personnel may
ask you for it.
You will be required to read and sign a Confidentiality and
Regulations Agreement at the test center. If you do not complete
and sign the agreement, you may not be allowed to test and your
fees will NOT be refunded.
You may be required to sign the test center log before and after the
test session and any time you leave or enter the testing room.
Other than ID, personal items are not allowed in the testing room.
Before the test, you will be assigned a locker or receive instructions
from test center personnel regarding where you must store personal
items. Storage space is limited, so plan accordingly. You may not
have access to your personal items during the test or break.
You are required to remain in the test center building. It is your
responsibility to ask the test administrator for permission to
leave the test center vicinity — for example, to go to the nearest
restroom. If you leave the test center without permission, you may
be dismissed or your scores may be canceled.
The test administrator will provide you with scratch paper for
use during the test to assist you in working out problems and for
appropriate note-taking during timed sections of the test. You may
not take your own scratch paper to the test. Scratch paper is not
to be used before the test or during breaks. During the test, if you
have used all of your scratch paper, you must return it to the test
center staff in order to receive more. You cannot remove a page or
portion of the scratch paper at any time. All paper, in its entirety,
must be returned to the test center administrator at the end of
the testing session. You may not write on anything other than
the scratch paper provided (e.g., computer or workstation or ID
document). Scratch paper should NOT be used during the untimed
sections or during breaks. If you are observed using any documents
or unauthorized papers other than the designated scratch paper
distributed by the test site, they will be confiscated by the test
center staff.
For paper-delivered tests administered as an accommodation
for a disability, test takers may use the test book for scratch
work. Scratch paper is not provided except as an approved
accommodation.
If you need to leave your seat at any time other than a scheduled
break, raise your hand; timing of the section will not stop.
If at any time during the test you have a problem with your
computer, or for any reason need the administrator, raise your
hand.
Testing premises are subject to videotaping.
The maximum time allotted for the tutorial and/or other untimed
sections before the test is 30 minutes. The purpose of the tutorial
and/or other untimed sections before the test is to become familiar
with the computer functions and other important information
that will make your testing experience as convenient as possible.
The time you spend on the tutorial and/or other untimed sections
should not be for any other purpose. You may not use scratch
paper during this time. Infractions will be reported to E
TS, and
the test administrator is authorized to dismiss you from the
test administration if you fail to follow the test administrator’s
directions.
The testing session is actively monitored by test center staff. This
includes staff walking around, and entering and leaving the testing
room.
DISMISSAL FROM A TEST CENTER
A test administrator is authorized to dismiss you from a test session
and/or your scores will be canceled by ETS for actions such as, but
not limited to, the following:
Attempting to take the test for someone else or having someone
else take the test for you.
Failing to provide acceptable identification.
Obtaining improper access to the test, a part of the test,
or information about the test. This includes having preknowledge
of test questions or answers in advance of the test administration,
in any form, and/or bringing such information to the test center
in any form, including on identification documents, stored in cell
phones, or any other method.
Using or having any phones or other electronic, recording,
listening, scanning, photographic device, or wearable technology
in your possession. Such devices are strictly prohibited at the test

(continued)
center. If you take these devices into the test center, you will be
dismissed from the test, forfeit your test fees, and ETS will cancel
your scores even if dismissal is not enforced on the day of the test.
Test centers and ETS assume no responsibility for personal items
that you choose to bring into the test center.
Using any aids in connection with the test is prohibited such as:
mechanical pencils, pens, scan pens or devices, pagers, beepers,
calculators, watch calculators, books, pamphlets, notes, rulers,
highlighter pens, stereos or radios with headphones, any phones,
watch alarms (including those with flashing lights or alarm
sounds), stop watches, dictionaries, translators, compasses,
protractors, rulers, and any hand-held electronic, recording/
listening, scanning, or photographic devices.
Creating a disturbance. Disruptive behavior in any form will not be
tolerated. The test administrator and ETS have sole discretion in
determining what constitutes disruptive behavior.
Attempting to give or receive assistance. Discussion or sharing
of test content or answers during the test administration, during
breaks, or after the test is prohibited. Communication in any form
is not permitted during the test administration.
Removing or attempting to remove test content from the test
center. Under no circumstances may test content or any part of
the test content be removed, reproduced, and/or disclosed by
any means (e.g., hard copy, verbally, electronically) to any person
or entity.
Bringing a weapon or firearm into the test center.
Bringing food, beverages, tobacco, or electronic cigarettes into the
testing room.
Leaving the test center vicinity during the test session or
during breaks, without permission.
Leaving the testing room before the test session is dismissed
(except for an unscheduled break during the test session).
Taking excessive or extended unscheduled breaks during the test
session. Test center administrators are required to strictly monitor
unscheduled breaks and report test takers who take excessive or
extended breaks.
Referring to, looking through, or working on any test, or test
section, when not authorized to do so, or working after time
has been called.
Failing to follow any of the test administration regulations
contained in this Bulletin, given by the test administrator, or
specified in any test materials.
ETS reserves the right to take all action — including, but not limited
to, barring you from future testing and/or canceling your scores —
for failure to comply with test administration regulations or the test
administrator’s directions. If your scores are canceled, they will not be
reported, and your test fees will not be refunded.
REGISTERING A COMPLAINT
If you think conditions at the test center were such that you were
unable to perform satisfactorily, you may cancel your score(s) and
request a retest. If you wish to cancel your score(s), you must select
the “Cancel Scores” option at the end of the test. Retests cannot
be offered if the “Report Scores” option has been selected and the
unofficial scores have been viewed. Complaints must be received
in writing no later than 7 business days after the administration.
Complaints received after this period will not be accepted. ETS will
investigate before responding to your request. Please see page 5 for
additional information.
SCORES & SCORE REPORTS
Reporting Your Test Scores
If you test in Arkansas, District of Columbia, Kansas, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, North
Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, or
Virginia, a copy of your scores will automatically be sent to that state’s
credentialing agency for school principals and superintendents.
SCORE REPORTING DATES
Your official scores will be supplied to your score recipients and
available to you in your online account. You will receive an email
notifying you when your score report is available to view. Access
your scores online at
www ets org/sls by logging into the account
you created when you registered. Official score reporting dates vary,
depending on which test you took. Please see the Score Reports
(
https://www ets org/sls/scores/reports) for additional information
on the score reporting dates. Score reports will be available for
10 years from the date scores are posted. We recommend that you
print or save a copy of your score reports for your records. To obtain
an official score report for scores reported within the last 10 years,
but before July 21, 2017, you will need to order an additional score
report. Please see
https://www ets org/sls/scores/add_reports/ for
ordering information.
For each test date, a copy of your scores will be sent to up to four
score recipients.* In order for your attending institution (college
or university where you received training that most closely relates
to the test(s) you are taking) to receive a copy of your score report,
you MUST list that institution as a score recipient. Individual score
reports are NOT sent to attending institutions unless they are
designated as a score recipient. Your scores for a specific test will
be sent to a designated recipient only if that institution or agency
is eligible to receive those test scores. Score reports will list your
current score and highest score you have ever earned on each test.
You will receive passing score information on your score report
for those score recipients or the state agency you designated when
you registered. If you list an institution as a score recipient, you will
receive passing score information for the state agency in which the
institution is located. Your score report will provide you with the
passing score set by the credentialing agency for each test you took
and tell you whether or not you met that score. The passing score
information is based on the most recent information The School
Leadership Series program has for each agency. Score recipients you
chose when you registered or to whom you sent an Additional Score
Report will receive passing score information that is pertinent only
to them. They will not receive passing score information for other
agencies, associations, or organizations.
Official score reports will not be released if you have an
outstanding balance, which may include an outstanding balance for
previous services from The School Leadership Series.
Scores from the 2020–21 testing year will be available for
reporting on additional score reports for ten years. Test taker
background data will be retained for the same time period.
For more information about your scores, you may download
Understanding Your School Leadership Series Scores from the SLS
website at www ets org/sls/scores/understand.
* E T S reserves the right to refrain from sending score reports
(1) to entities that have been found to violate the Proper Use of The Praxis Series and
Related Assessments and
(2) to entities against which complaints of violation have been made pending completion
of ETS’s inquiry into the claimed violations

Scoring Services
ADDITIONAL SCORE REPORTS (ASRs)
Fee: $50 each
At your request, ETS will send your scores and reportable background
information to additional institutions or agencies. When you register
to test, you may select up to four score recipients at no charge. You
may add or change these score recipients up to 3 days before your
test appointment. You may complete your request online at
www .ets
.org/sls/scores/add_reports, by mail, phone, or fax. To make ASR
Request online, log in to your SLS account. Click on “Order
Additional Score Reports” and follow the instructions to complete
your order. If you wish to send your scores to additional recipients,
you may order an additional score report (ASR). To request an ASR
by mail or fax, download and complete the Additional Score Report
form located at
www ets org/sls/scores/add_reports. Additional score
reports are issued within 5–7 calendar days for online and phone
requests and 10 business days for mailed or faxed requests. The
additional score reports are posted to your ETS online account and
remain available for 10 years from the test date. The reports are no
longer mailed to your postal address.
When you ask ETS to send additional score reports to institutions
or agencies, you automatically authorize ETS to report your highest
score. (Scores will be sent to a recipient only if that recipient is
eligible to receive those scores.)
If scores have not been reported from a current administration
and you want the institutions or agencies listed on your Additional
Score Report Request form combined with those you selected when
you registered, check the appropriate box on the form. Current and
highest scores will then be reported to all recipients requested.
You will automatically receive a copy of your score report
confirming
that your score report was sent.
SCORE REVIEW SERVICE
Fee: SSA (6991) - $65
SLLA (6990) - $65
All constructed-response and essay readers have been carefully trained
and follow strict scoring procedures. Each test that contains one or
more constructed responses or essays is scored by more than one
reader. However, if you feel that your score on the School Leaders
Series Assessment and/or the School Superintendent Assessment does
not accurately reflect your performance, you may request a score
review of your test. (Note: Selected-response questions on computer-
delivered tests are not available for score review because they have
already been scored twice — initially at the test center, then they
were transmitted to ETS where they were verified.)
To have a score reviewed, download and complete the Score
Review Request form from the SLS website at https://www
.
ets
.
org/s/
sls/pdf/score_review_request
.
pdf and send it to ETS with the proper
fee. Your request must be received within three months of the test
date. If there is a change in your reported score, the revised score
(which may be higher or lower than your originally reported score)
will be reported to you and to the recipients of the original score, and
your review fee will be refunded. Your test books and answer sheets
are not available for disclosure. Please note that your score for a
specific test will be reviewed only once.
Cancellation of Scores by You
If you feel you did not perform to your potential on a test, you have
the option of cancelling your scores before they are reported.
You may cancel your score for an SLS test at the end of the test
session, but before viewing your unofficial score on the screen.
(Note: not all SLS tests offer the opportunity to view unofficial scores
at the end of a testing session. If an unofficial score is not provided
for your test, it means that further analysis must be conducted
before scoring can be completed. This does NOT indicate any
problem with the administration of your test and will NOT result
in any delay of the reporting of your official score. The Kentucky
Specialty Test of Instructional and Administrative Practices (6015)
is the only SLS test that may provide an unofficial score.)
Once your scores have been cancelled, they will not be reported,
and they cannot be reinstated on your record. You will not receive a
refund if you choose to cancel your scores.
Cancellation of Scores by ETS
ETS strives to report scores that accurately reflect the performance
of every test taker. Accordingly, ETS’s standards and procedures
for administering tests have two primary goals: giving test takers
equivalent opportunities to demonstrate their abilities, and
preventing any test takers from gaining an unfair advantage over
others. To promote these objectives, ETS reserves the right to cancel
any test score whether or not it has already been reported, and to
take such other actions as ETS deems appropriate, including banning
the test taker from taking any future ETS test and referring the
matter to law enforcement authorities, when in ETS’s judgment, a
testing irregularity occurs; there is an apparent discrepancy in a test
taker’s identification; the test taker may have engaged in misconduct,
including without limitation having someone else take the test for
the test taker, obtaining improper access to test questions or answers,
disclosing test questions or answers to third parties, plagiarism, or
copying or communication; or the score is invalid for another reason.
When ETS cancels a test score that has already been reported, it
notifies score recipients that the score has been canceled.
Testing Irregularities
“Testing Irregularities” refers to problems with the administration
of a test. Testing irregularities may result from actions of test takers,
test center personnel, ETS, or from man-made causes. When testing
irregularities occur, they may affect an individual or groups of test
takers. Such problems include, without limitation, administrative
errors (such as improper timing, improper seating, defective
materials (e.g., improper or damaged test forms), and defective
equipment); improper access to test content; and other disruptions
of test administrations (such as natural disasters or other
emergencies). When testing irregularities occur, ETS may decline to
score the test, or cancel the test score. When, in ETS’s judgment, it
is appropriate to do so, ETS gives affected test takers the opportunity
to take the test again as soon as possible, without charge.
Identification Discrepancies
When, in ETS’s judgment or the judgment of test center
administrators, there is a discrepancy in a test taker’s identification,
the test taker may be dismissed from the test center. In addition, ETS
may decline to score the test or cancel the test score if the documents
or photos from the test day cannot be validated or if ETS has evidence
that you did not appear for the test. If test scores are canceled by ETS,
the test fees will NOT be refunded. ETS may also ban you from taking
any future ETS test.
Misconduct
When ETS or test center personnel find that there is misconduct
in connection with a test, the test taker may be dismissed from the
test center, ETS may decline to score the test, cancel the test and
may ban you from taking any future ETS test. Test takers whose
scores are canceled will forfeit their test fees. If fraudulent activity is
detected after scores have been reported, ETS will cancel scores and
notify score recipients of the cancellation. Misconduct includes, but
is not limited to, noncompliance with the Test Center Procedures and
Regulations, on pages 11–13 of this Bulletin.

Scores & Score Reports www.ets.org/sls 2020–21 The School Leadership Series
. .
SCORES & SCORE REPORTS
(continued)
Invalid Scores
ETS may also cancel scores if, in its judgment, there is substantial
evidence that they are invalid for any other reason. Substantial
evidence means evidence that is sufficient to persuade a reasonable
person; the substantial evidence standard is lower (i.e., requires
less proof) than reasonable doubt, clear and convincing, and
preponderance of evidence standards. Evidence of invalid scores
may include, without limitation, discrepant handwriting, unusual
answer patterns, and inconsistent performance on different parts of
the test. Before canceling scores pursuant to this paragraph, ETS
notifies the test taker in writing about its concerns, gives the test
taker an opportunity to submit information that addresses ETS’s
concerns, considers any such information submitted, and offers the
test taker a choice of options. The options may include voluntary
score cancellation, a future test without charge, or arbitration in
accordance with ETS’s standard Arbitration Agreement. Note: The
arbitration option is available only to test takers who test in the
United States and U.S. Territories. For more detailed information
please reference Why and How ETS Questions Test Scores at
https://
www ets org/praxis/scores/questioning.
Your essay responses on the writing section will be reviewed by
experienced essay readers during the scoring process. ETS reserves
the right to cancel test scores of any test taker when an essay
response includes any of the following:
text that is unusually similar to that found in one or more
School Leaders Licensure Assessment and/or School
Superintendent Assessment essay responses;
quoting or paraphrasing, without attribution, language or ideas
that appear in published or unpublished sources;
unacknowledged use of work that has been produced through
collaboration with others without citation of the contribution
of others;
essays submitted as work of the test taker that appear to have
been borrowed in whole or in part from elsewhere or prepared by
another person.
When one or more of the above circumstances occurs ETS may
conclude that the essay response, in ETS’s professional judgment,
does not reflect the independent writing skills that this test seeks to
measure. When ETS reaches that conclusion, it cancels the essay
score and cannot report scores for this test, of which the essay score
is an indispensable part.
Confidentiality of Information
ETS recognizes your right to control the information about you
that is stored by ETS. Its policies are designed to safeguard your
information from unauthorized disclosure.
Your score report is intended only for you and for your designated
score recipients. However, background information as noted during
registration is reported to some states and institutions. To protect
your right to control the distribution of your scores, reports will
be released only at your specific request and only to ETS-approved
score recipients. ETS will not release your scores at the request of
institutions or agencies except
for use in research studies approved by The School Leadership
Series and that preserve your anonymity
when information is required under compulsion of legal processes,
in which case your score record and other documents you
completed that are retained at ETS may be released to third parties
(e.g., government agencies, parties to a lawsuit, etc.) if requested
pursuant to a subpoena. Such documents may include but are not
limited to photographs and documents completed at check-in on
test day.
when a state’s central regents office or board of governors requests
copies of scores that have been reported to its member institutions
when test takers have been informed by the administrator
beforehand that their scores will automatically be released to
the state
when test takers have been notified in the Bulletin that a particular
state requiring scores has arranged for all individuals tested in that
state to have their scores sent directly from ETS
when a branch institution requests scores previously sent to its
main office or vice versa
Official score reports for properly designated recipients are sent
directly from ETS to ensure the authenticity of the reports. Note
that whenever ETS has confirmed that you have submitted a School
Leadership Series Assessment score directly to an educational
institution, agency, or district in satisfaction of one of its
requirements, ETS will respond to requests for score verification
from that recipient.
Pretest Questions
SLS tests may include pretest questions — new questions that are
being evaluated for possible use in future editions of the test.
Pretest questions are not identified within a test in order to assess
how test takers respond to them under actual testing conditions.
Pretest questions do not count toward your score.
Test Takers’ Performance Data
Test takers’ performance data may be used in analysis samples, score
interpretation data, group statistics, and research studies. Test takers’
constructed responses may be used in ETS materials to train scorers,
to help score recipients interpret scores, or to help test takers
prepare for the test. In each instance, all identifying information
will be removed.

Additional Information
This paragraph containing additional information is of general application, but it is also provided for purposes of the EU General Data
Protection Regulation when it comes into force (to the extent the Regulation is applicable to you in the context of the Testing Services):
ETS Corporate Details (including contact details): Educational Testing Service, 660 Rosedale Road, Princeton, NJ 08541, USA, email:
etsinfo@ets.org
Purpose and Legal Basis for Processing: To provide tests and testing services as requested, including processing for the administration of
tests, such as marking and score reporting to test takers and nominated score recipients.
Legitimate Interests relied upon: ETS requires your Personal Information for purposes of administering educational tests and providing
these tests in a secure manner so that test takers receive accurate results and test qualifications are recognized by intended score
recipients.
International Transfers: Data will be transferred to data processors engaged by ETS in various jurisdictions outside of the EEA,
depending on the particular Testing Services requested. These transfers are made in accordance with the acknowledgment you have
given above and intercompany and third party transfer agreements, in accordance with applicable laws.
Personal Information Retention: Personal Information is generally held for 5 years from the date of its submission. This period may
be extended by ETS if the score for the Testing Service you require remains valid for a longer period (which information is usually
contained in your testing result information), if the Testing Service you have requested is being reviewed or if our legitimate interest
in retaining your Personal Information remains in place. It also may be shorter if we no longer require your Personal Information (for
example, if you have expressed interest in a test but have not taken one). You may contact us at etsinfo@ets.org if you require further
information.
Data Subject Rights: In addition to the rights described above, you may have data portability rights. For security reasons, most testing
organizations will require that Personal Information be obtained directly from you and this may limit the usefulness of your data
portability rights.
Supervisory Body: Please contact the national data processing authority in the jurisdiction in which you receive the Testing Services.
For Hong Kong residents only: Subject to applicable laws regarding our use of your Personal Information, we will not use your Personal
Information if we do not reasonably believe that such use is in your interests. In order for us to supply you with the Testing Services,
you must supply us with your Personal Information to complete any registration, purchase or other transaction you request online and/
or perform any of our other contractual obligations to you which requires us to have the Personal Information.
For Australian residents only: please be informed that if you agree to the overseas disclosure of the information or transfer of your data
outside of Australia, ETS and its affiliates will not be required to take reasonable steps to ensure that ETS or its affiliates’ use of such
data outside of Australia does not breach the Australian Privacy Principles.
For Canadian Residents only: This is the notification that ETS is required to provide to Canadian residents. Please see above regarding
International Data Transfers. Where we transfer Personal Data to third parties we contractually require third parties to have a written
procedures in place that comply with the requirements of the applicable privacy laws in Canada.
For Singapore Residents only: In connection with the transfer of your Personal Information outside of Singapore, ETS believes that the
laws of the recipient country of your Personal Information will provide a standard of protection comparable to the applicable laws of
Singapore.
