Sometimes shipments don’t work out. We understand. Please follow these simple directions to begin a return:

      • No credit will be issued for opened CDs or DVDs, testing materials or used items.

Assessments Return Policy:

  1. Testing materials are generally non-returnable, because:
    • Shipping can often damage test materials in transit and then they cannot be resold. 
    • Testing materials are paper-bound or single sheets that can be easily bent with handling and shipping. 
    • Tests are machine scored and must be in good condition to go through the machine scoring process, the slightest damage can make them unusable.
  2. If school ordered testing materials by mistake (like for a grade you do not test): 
    • Contact the ACSI Care Team to request RMA and return shipping label.
    • If return is approved, package materials tightly in a sturdy box and fill any empty space with clean, crumpled paper, so the papers/booklets do not shift around in the box during shipping.
    • ACSI will provide partial credit for returned testing materials that are still in the shrink-wrap or packaged so well that they arrive in perfect, resalable condition.  
    • Testing materials that arrive in good, resalable condition may receive credit less a 20% restocking/return shipping fee.
    • Please understand that returning testing materials to ACSI is at your own risk. Credit will not be issued for damaged returns, and the testing materials will not be sent back to schools.
