This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Testing Results Request and Report Transaction Set (138) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. This standard can be used to request and receive the results of testing programs by educational institutions and employers. This information includes one test-taker's identification, test identification, testing conditions, scoring results, and test normalization analysis including national, regional, and local norms.
Although TS 138 can accommodate the request for and transmission of various testing results— SAT, GRE, and TOEFL, for example—this particular implementation guide can be used for sending SAT testing results only. The Segment Summary contains all the segments in the X12 transaction set, but only those segments marked with “*” are used in reporting SAT test results. The subset of segment and data element details contained in this implementation guide accommodate all requirements to report SAT testing results.
