ISEE At Home

As an ERB Member School, your candidates currently have two ISEE At Home testing options. No matter which option you or your applicants choose to use, families can always direct their scores to you by logging into our Admission Registration System (ARS).

School Administered

With this option, you can directly administer the ISEE to your candidates remotely using your own staff as proctors, similar to on-campus testing.
Read on to learn more about how this testing option works, with step-by-step instructions to support you through the administration process, as well as FAQs, below.

Prometric Administered

With this option, your applicants can secure an at-home test on-demand with the ISEE At Home via ProProctor powered by Prometric. Families register for testing online and all test administration is conducted by Prometric. You can review the information we provide to families regarding this option at the link below.

Create Virtual Test Events

ERB Member Schools who are registered ISEE Test Sites will create virtual test events in the ERB Admission Registration System (ARS). For step-by-step instructions on creating virtual test events, please download the instructions provided here.
Once test events are created, you will distribute your private, virtual event codes to your applicant families. Families will then use these event codes to register for your remote test similarly to how they would register for a standard, in-person test. They will either enter this event code when they register online in the Admission Portal or provide this event code when they register over the phone.
