U.S. MAIL REGISTRATION
You may register by U.S. mail during the regular and late registration periods only. Please note that the registration deadlines are strictly enforced.
For the regular registration period, your registration materials must be postmarked by the regular registration deadline. Registration materials postmarked after the regular registration deadline must include the late registration fee or they will be returned unprocessed. This may delay your administration date or cause you to incur additional registration fees. If your registration envelope bears multiple postmarks, the most recent date will govern.
For the late registration period, your registration form and payment, including the late registration fee, must be received no later than 4:00 p.m. mountain time on the late registration deadline. Registration materials received after the late registration deadline will be returned unprocessed regardless of the postmark date. This may delay your administration date or cause you to incur additional registration fees.
Before you register. Before you register, please review the "Registration Checklist" to ensure that you have all of the information you need to complete the registration process. Because of laws protecting confidentiality and privacy, only you may register yourself for a test.
If you wish to request alternative testing arrangements, please submit your request and any required documentation by mail with your registration form, or fax it separately, before the regular registration deadline. See "Registering for Alternative Testing Arrangements" for information about how to complete and submit the Alternative Testing Arrangements Request Form.
How to register. To register, complete the registration form by following the instructions listed on the form. The registration form can be ordered on the New Mexico Teacher Assessments website by selecting "Print Bulletin and Forms (PDF)."
Enter your name as it appears on your government-issued identification. The registration form is processed by computer; therefore, a photocopied or faxed registration form will not be accepted. After you have provided and checked all the information on the registration form and then signed the form, mail it along with the correct payment in the envelope provided (see "Procedures for U.S. Mail Registration" below). See "Test Dates" for the registration deadlines and score report date associated with each test date.
If you are concerned that you may be mailing your registration materials too close to the late registration deadline, you may choose to use an expedited delivery service to ensure that they arrive at Evaluation Systems on time. Contact your U.S. post office or another overnight delivery service for information about the best method for sending your registration materials to ensure on-time delivery to Evaluation Systems. The overnight mailing address is:
New Mexico Teacher Assessments
300 Venture Way
Hadley, MA 01035
Telephone: (413) 256-2884
Payment. Payment must be made at the time of registration by cashier's check or money order. An additional fee applies for late registration. See "Test Fees and Payment Policies" for complete information about registration fees and payment policies.
Confirmation. You will receive your admission ticket by U.S. mail after you have been assigned to a specific test site. If you have not received your admission ticket one week before the late registration deadline, contact Evaluation Systems.
Notice of Error in Registration
If your registration form is incomplete or illegible or if the correct payment is not enclosed, your registration materials will be returned to you unprocessed with a letter advising you of the error and the deadline by which your corrected materials must be received in order for you to be registered for the administration. This may result in additional registration fees or a delay in your test date, as no corrected registration materials will be accepted after the late registration deadline. If you receive your unprocessed registration materials after the late registration deadline, you may still be able to register during the emergency registration period. However, all emergency registration rules, including the registration options and fees, will apply.
