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, Content Area Report, and Benchmarking Report are run from a database that is updated eight times per year, after each NPTE exam date.
When does my report expire?
School report data are maintained for the most recent five full calendar years. When you purchase and run a report, it will remain viewable as long as the data remain available, for up to five full 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.
For example, if you purchased a report in June of 2020, you could choose to run the report for data through June 2020 (January and April administrations), and that report would update as additional students test in July and October. You could also choose to run the report for any year from 2015 to 2019. If you purchase a report for 2015, that report would be available until new data is available for 2021, at which time the 2015 data will be retired.
