- For students attempting to test out of the Personal Finance course, a score of 90% or higher must be achieved.
- For students taking the assessment as part of their embedded Personal Finance coursework, the pass rate is a district decision.
- At least 48 hours prior to testing, District Test Coordinators must submit an excel file of students testing to: [email protected]
- DTC's should be sure to use their official school email address. Personal email accounts are not acceptable.

- E-mail addresses that end in .com are occasionally classified as SPAM or are not delivered for other filtering reasons. If DTC's do not receive expected emails from "[email protected]”, and have checked in their SPAM or junk mail filters, they should contact their building's IT staff to allow receipt of email.
Finally, DTC's will send a list of names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses for any other administrators/teachers that are involved in the assessment to: [email protected]
- Only those names submitted by the DTC will have access to the system and be given technical support. DTC's should be sure to use their official school email address to submit this list.
