The traditional printed test is the core selection with the option to add the online testing license. If you do not use the computer for your spelling contest, you do not pay for the online access. BUT…if you love the idea of not having to secure a pronouncer or to worry with recruiting graders, then the online testing license is definitely worth the extra money!
TRADITIONAL TEST INFORMATION: The invitational test includes all testing materials in PDF format along with an audio file (fast track). The fast track is intended to serve as a tutorial for your pronouncer and is not to be used in lieu of a pronouncer. This selection does not come with the computer option. Note: Online access is available as an add-on.
Important Ordering Information: You must provide the contest director’s name, email address, and the date of your meet so that we can send you the PDFs along with the audio file. Please contact ASW directly if your meet does not fall on a Saturday so we can make sure that we can accommodate it. Be sure that our email address is not filtered or blocked by your security filter. All invitational tests will be available approximately 1-2 weeks before a scheduled meet. Our testing calendar runs mid-October through the first week of March.
ONLINE TEST INFORMATION (available only as an add-on option): Testing can be administered on any device. An essential requirement is strong, reliable internet. An email containing login information will be sent approximately one week prior to the event date. The contest director will be able to access all necessary instructions and videos from the email and from the testing website. A hard copy of the test can be printed by the contest director one day before the meet for reference. On the day of the meet, the test can be turned on so that spellers can log in and take the test (headphones/earbuds required). The contest director can monitor progress on a dashboard. Once the test is turned off, the spellers are ranked. Results and graded papers can be printed by the contest director. For more details, please watch our instructional videos located on our website under FAQ. Please contact ASW with any questions. Online access must be ordered for each contest given at separate schools in the case of a virtual meet. You will also receive the traditional testing materials as part of the required core selection.
Important Ordering Information: You must provide the contest director’s name, email address, and the date of the meet so that we can send the login information. The testing date is set in the online system so if the date changes, you must contact ASW. Be sure that our email address and testing website (aswbee.com) are not filtered or blocked by your security filter. ASW is not responsible for any testing irregularities caused by weak or faulty internet access.
March 5, 2022 is the last invitational weekend with a test available.
