AEST Teacher accounts provide access to schedule exams, edit student candidate account information, purchase exam credits for a school’s AEST account, and review candidate exam reports.
SCHEDULING EXAM SESSIONS
AEST teacher accounts allow you to schedule exam sessions in the testing platform. To schedule an exam login to the AEST Testing Platform and enter the exam name, date, time, and proctor’s name. After the exam is scheduled you are required to add students from your school’s student list to the exam session before testing. Exam Sessions can be scheduled with zero credits in the school’s account, however, the school must have ‘Available Exam Credits’ to cover the cost of the exam before the proctor can ‘seat’ the student on exam day. Schools are not charged for scheduled exams that result in no-shows, provided the proctor does not ‘seat’ the student.
PURCHASING EXAM CREDITS AND PAYMENT METHODS
AEST is an exam credit-based system. Exam credits are $1 each, providing you the flexibility to test initial exams, retakes, and all levels of certification exams. You can purchase exam credits for your school’s account any time before your scheduled exam. AEST charges for exams by deducting credits from the school’s account when the proctor ‘seats’ the student on exam day. This method prevents issues regarding refunds and no-shows. Credits do not expire and can be purchased at any time. Printable exam quotes are provided by logging into your account and using the “Exam Session Estimate Worksheet” feature.
Exam credits may be purchased using three payment options depending on the school’s purchasing authorizations: invoice, purchase order, or credit card. Invoices will be generated for “invoice” and “purchase order” options. Invoices are sent electronically to the email address specified during the purchasing process and allow payments by check or credit card. Receipts for exam credit purchases are provided electronically.
