Scheduling & Cost
Our aptitude testing program consists of two testing sessions, each about three hours long, and the evaluation conference, which runs between 60 and 90 minutes.
Many of our clients opt for a one-day testing format (testing in the morning and afternoon with a lunch break in the middle of the day), but separate, half-day testing appointments can also be arranged. Morning sessions start at 8:30 or 9:00 a.m and afternoon sessions start at 1:00 or 1:30 p.m, depending on the local office. The evaluation conferences are conducted over Zoom and held on a separate day from testing at various times throughout the day. You are welcome to invite anyone you’d like (friend, partner, parent, etc.) to join the evaluation sessions.
Masks are encouraged but not required in our offices.
Please call or email the testing center directly to arrange your appointment times.
If the person being tested has learning differences or any other diagnosis that may impact their testing experience, please let us know when scheduling. If you have questions about whether the testing is appropriate, see here. If you need to discuss it further, please call the testing center and we’d be happy to answer any questions.
Our testing offices are generally open Monday through Friday. At some offices, Saturday testing is also available. Please check with the center where you plan to be tested. In addition, all offices are open during Christmas and New Year’s weeks and on the following holidays: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Columbus Day, and Veteran’s Day. You should schedule your appointments in advance, especially for holidays and school vacation times.
Our current fee is $850 in all our offices. That flat fee (less than the cost of a university course) includes six hours of testing, one 60-90 minute results consultation and a second, optional consultation that can be taken within a year of testing. Written materials (digital report and book) are also included. As a nonprofit organization, we are firmly committed to keeping prices as low as possible while covering our operating costs.
We request a $100 deposit to hold appointments. The balance is due upon your arrival for the first appointment. We accept all major credit cards, cash or personal check. We will refund your deposit if we receive a cancellation or appointment change request at least two business days prior to the scheduled date.
Gift certificates are available for any amount. If you are interested in purchasing a gift certificate, please call our accounting department at 617-536-1584, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
