More about the ISEE At Home

The ISEE At Home is a remotely-delivered admissions exam available for students applying to Grades 2-12 in the U.S. and internationally. There are currently two primary ISEE At Home testing options:
  • School Administered ISEE At Home
  • ERB Administered ISEE At Home
The exams themselves are identical. The primary difference is that, for that School Administered tests, exams are set up and proctored by school staff. To participate in a School Administered ISEE At Home exam, students must be invited by a school to participate and provided an event code which they use to register for the exam.
ERB Administered ISEE At Home exams are open enrollment and proctored by ERB staff. Families can register for this option at any time without being invited to participate.
All registrations are completed through ERB's Admission Registration System.
