Release of Test Scores

Your test scores from the THEA will be reported to you, the institution(s) you indicated when you registered, and the test center at which you took the test. Because test scores are confidential and private, under no circumstances will your score be released over the telephone, in person, by e-mail, or by fax.

Automatic scoring of your writing sample may not be possible if the writing sample is too short and/or off topic. If your writing sample cannot be automatically scored, it may take up to two business days for your score report to become available.

Test results will be reported automatically to the institution where you took your test. If you need your test results reported to additional institutions or the Texas Education Agency (TEA), you may request that a copy be sent by submitting a completed Test Results Request Form PDF document. The fee for a copy of your test results is $15 per copy. Enclose a money order or cashier’s check for the appropriate amount payable to Evaluation Systems. Do not send cash. Please allow two to four weeks from receipt of your request for delivery of your scores.

Examinee Score Report

Your score report will be mailed by U.S. mail to the address indicated on your registration form.

If your social security number is not correct on your score report, write a letter to Evaluation Systems that includes your name, address, and date of birth; the name of the institution that you are currently attending; your signature; and the social security number that appears incorrectly. Mail or fax the letter to Evaluation Systems with photocopies of your social security card and your photographic identification to correct your THEA records. Evaluation Systems will send you and the institution that you indicate in your letter a corrected copy of your score report.

Score Reports to Institutions

Score reports will be sent through the electronic THEA Test Score Distribution System to each of the institutions you select during registration, in addition to the institution at which you take the test.

Test scores may be distributed by the registrar to faculty and staff at the institutions for use in advising, placing, and monitoring student progress in accordance with institutional policies. An institution will accept as proof of your test scores only reports that it receives directly from Evaluation Systems, whether requested by you or by the institution itself. The score report that you receive will not be accepted by the institution as proof of your test scores.
