Additional Instructions for paper and pencil testing
When you are checking out there are two additional details we must receive to make sure you receive your materials on time.
  1. Contest materials cannot be shipped to the French teacher. You MUST indicate the name of your neutral party to receive materials on the shipping information. Please be sure that you use your school address in the shipping address.
  2. We MUST have the date you plan to test. We schedule shipments based on this date. If you do not indicate a date, your order for materials will be placed at the back of the queue and may not arrive when you plan to test. There is a box requesting this information on the check out page, so please be sure to complete it.
