What Happens After Taking The Executive Assessment?


How do I receive and send my EA scores?

One great thing about taking the Executive Assessment is that you don’t have to wait long to see your scores or to send them to schools.

When you take the Executive Assessment at a test center, you see your official scores for that exam on your computer screen immediately after completing your exam. You also receive a printout of your EA scores for that exam before you leave the test center. Furthermore, your scores are available in your online account within 24 hours of your test appointment, and any schools you previously selected to receive your scores will also get them within 24 hours.

There is a slightly longer wait for test-takers who sit for the Executive Assessment at home. In that case, you will not see your EA scores on your computer immediately after you finish your exam. Instead, your scores for that exam will be viewable in your online account within seven days of your test date and sent at that time to any score recipients you’ve selected. Assessment-takers report that the score typically comes within about six calendar days.

Keep in mind that the scores you see at the test center are, in fact, the same scores that will be posted to your account and sent to your designated schools. There are no “unofficial” scores for the Executive Assessment; the scores you see at the test center will not change.

Selecting Score Recipients

Sending your EA scores to schools is free and easy, and there are a couple of ways you can do it. When you register for your Executive Assessment test, you will be given the option to select programs to send your EA scores to, but you can also select score recipients through your mba.com account after your exam, if you prefer.

Additionally, if you select score recipients during the exam registration process but later would like to change your selections, you can do so in your online account any time prior to your scheduled test appointment. Furthermore, if you decide after your exam that there are additional schools to which you’d like to send your scores, you can log into your account anytime and select additional recipients for free.

The one catch is that after your exam, you can’t change score recipients you selected before your exam; you can only select additional recipients. So, if you plan to select score recipients prior to your exam, just make sure you’re 100% happy with your selections before test day rolls around. Of course, if you have any doubts in your mind, you won’t lose anything by waiting until after test day to select your score recipients (provided you’re not racing to meet a deadline). We’d recommend just not selecting any schools to send the score to. After all adding schools after the fact is free, so why commit to sending it before the exam?

You should also keep in mind that EA scores are valid for 5 years from your test date, so if you sit for the Executive Assessment before you’ve finalized your list of programs you’d like to attend, you’ll have plenty of time to make those decisions.
