RELEASE OF YOUR TEST SCORES
Your test scores will be reported to you, the CTC, and the institution(s) that you indicated when you registered. Your scores will be available on the score report date published in "Test Dates." Keep a copy for your permanent records. Your scores may be delayed due to problems with registration or other matters.
Unofficial Test Results at a Computer-Based Test Center
If you take the CBEST on computer, you will receive unofficial test results for the Reading and Mathematics sections at the conclusion of your test. Your unofficial test results will also note whether or not you took the Writing Section. The Writing Section is scored during a scoring session held within two weeks of the test date. Unofficial test results are not acceptable substitutes for a score report.
Examinee Score Reports
Your score report is available to you on the Internet, at 10:00 p.m. Pacific time on the score report date published in "Test Dates," as a PDF document, which you may view, print, and save for your records. To access your score report on the Internet, select "Score Reporting" on the CBEST website and follow the instructions provided. Your score report will be available for 45 days after the score report date.
Your score report provides information about your passing status, your highest score earned on each section to date, and other performance information. See "CBEST Passing Requirements" for detailed information about the passing requirements for the CBEST.
Your score report is accompanied by an explanation of how to read your score report. A score report explanation is also available by selecting "Score Reporting" on the CBEST website.
If you took the CBEST at a paper-based administration and a computer-based administration that have overlapping score reporting periods, the first score report you receive may not reflect your most recent administration. The second score report you receive will provide information about your passing status and highest section scores based on both administrations.
If you register online, you have the opportunity during the registration process to request that your score report be sent to you by email. Score report emails are sent beginning at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time on the score report date. If you request this service, your score report will be sent to the email address that you provide during the registration process. If you wish to have your score report sent to a different address, you may log in to your account on the CBEST website and update your contact information.
If you register by telephone, your score report will also be sent to you by U.S. mail on the score report date. Your score report will be sent to the address that you provide during the registration process. If you wish to have your score report sent to a different address, you may log in to your account on the CBEST website and update your contact information.
If you have not received your score report by two weeks after the score report date, call (800) 262-5080 or (916) 928-4001. Under no circumstances will your score report information be released in person or by telephone or fax.
Permanent Verification Card
If you pass the CBEST, you will receive the following with your score report:
- a Permanent Verification Card, which confirms that you have passed the CBEST (retain this for your records)
- two transcript copies of your Permanent Verification Card for you to use as may be required by the commissions, school districts, or colleges and universities
Candidates who are applying for California credentials that require passage of the CBEST are allowed to submit a photocopy of their Permanent Verification Card to the CTC as part of their application packet. Candidates who are applying for California credentials and who took the CBEST at any out-of-state site, however, must submit one of their original transcript copies of the Permanent Verification Card to the CTC along with the other materials indicated on the credential application form.
