School Report FAQs
Can I pay with a purchase order?
The online system has two payment options; credit card or invoice. If you pay by credit card, your reports are available to be run the same day. If you prefer to have your institution send a check, you can choose to pay by invoice.
When you choose to pay by invoice, the last screen of the purchase process is the official invoice. The invoice can be printed and submitted to your accounts payable department so that a check can be issued and mailed to FSBPT with the invoice. Please do not send a purchase order—use the invoice you printed at the time you ordered your report.
How often is the report data updated?
The Basic Pass Rate Report, Graduate Performance Report, and Content Area Report are run from a database that is updated eight times per year, after each NPTE exam date. Schools will be given an opportunity after each exam date to review and request changes to your student rosters before the data is finalized and new reports become available. It is very important to review your student rosters prior to the deadline so that any discrepancies can be resolved.
What is the “Manage My Students” listing?
The Manage My Students tab shows rosters of all your students in your most recent five graduating classes. There are two views: real time and report.
The real time view shows the most updated information we have in our system. If you request a change to your roster it will immediately be reflected in the real time list.
The report view shows the students that would be included if you ran a report today. Because report data is only updated after each exam, if you make a correction to your student roster after the deadline, the correction would not be reflected in the report view until the next scheduled update.
When does my report expire?
When you purchase and run a report, it will remain viewable for up to five years. Reports will also periodically update for a graduation year as new data becomes available. There is no need to purchase a new report if some of your students wait to take the NPTE.
