    • If your school is paper testing, make-up test days will be one of the paper test days designated for successive administrations. For example, if you choose Option 1 for your initial paper test date, your make-up day will be either the paper test date for Option 2 or Option 3. Alternatively, the student may be tested online during one of the designated administration windows.
    • If your school chooses Option 2 for your initial paper test date, the make-up option will be the initial paper test date for Option 3 or the student may be tested online during one of the designated administration windows.
    • If your school chooses Option 3, make-up tests will have to be administered online during the designated administration window as there is no additional paper testing option.
    • If your school is testing online, any make-up testing may be completed within the designated testing option windows for any of the three designated administration windows.
