Identification and Personal Items

Review our tips for a successful Assessment Day.

On the day of your assessment, arrive at the test center at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment.

What identification do I need to bring to the test center?

Bring a government issued ID that is valid (not expired), original (no photocopies), legible, and includes:

  • A recent, recognizable photo
  • Your name in the Roman alphabet, spelled exactly as you provided at registration
  • Your signature
  • Your date of birth as you provided at registration

Acceptable IDs include:

  • Driver’s license
  • Military ID
  • Permanent resident/green card
  • Passport

Note: Special identification requirements apply in certain countries and to citizens of certain countries. Please review the Executive Assessment Policies and Procedures page for further information about your country's specific requirements. If you are unable to present the correct identification at the Test Center, you will not be allowed to complete your test and your registration fee will be forfeit.

What about personal items or calculators, are they allowed?

Personal items, including calculators, mobile phones, study notes, and guides are not allowed in the test room. You will be provided with a locker to store your personal belongings. Note that the test administrator is not responsible for lost or stolen items. If you access your mobile phone at any time during the assessment, the assessment will be cancelled and your fee will be forfeited. 

 A calculator will be available for use during the Integrated Reasoning section only. Calculators are not allowed during the Quantitative section. Instead, a note board and marker will be provided.

What if I need my mobile phone?

You may not bring your mobile phone into the testing room. You may store your phone in a locker during your assessment, but the test administrator is not responsible for lost or stolen items. If you do access your cell phone at any time during your assessment time, your assessment will be cancelled, and your assessment fee will be forfeited. 

Will there be any breaks provided?

No breaks will be provided during your assessment. If an emergency arises and you must take a break, raise your hand to notify the administrator. The administrator will set your workstation to "break" mode, and you may leave the testing room. The assessment timer will NOT stop during your unscheduled break.
