U.S. MAIL REGISTRATION FOR RICA VIDEO PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT
For the RICA Video Performance Assessment, you may register for the 2012–2013 program year any time through June 7, 2013. To meet the submission deadline for a specific score report date, your video packets must be received by the submission deadline for the corresponding score report date. See "Test Dates" for the submission deadline for each score report date.
Before you register. Review the "Test Dates" page to ensure that you have all the information you need to complete the registration process. Because of laws protecting confidentiality and privacy, only you may register yourself for a test.
To request alternative assessment arrangements, please submit your request and any required documentation by mail with your registration form as early as possible. See "Registering for Alternative Assessment Arrangements for the RICA Video Performance Assessment" for information about how to complete and submit the Alternative Testing/Assessment Arrangements Request Form.
How to register. To register, complete the registration form by following the instructions listed on the form. The registration form can be ordered on the RICA website by selecting "Print Bulletin and Forms (PDF)." (The form and a preprinted envelope will be mailed to you.)
Enter your name as it appears on your government-issued identification. If your address is not in the United States or its territories or possessions, enter "OC" for a state code and enclose a note with your full address legibly printed. If you do not have a United States Social Security number, leave section 6 blank.
On a single registration form, you will be asked to indicate the submission deadline you plan to meet. If you chose the November or March submission deadline and do not meet that date, you may submit your materials by the June deadline.
After you have provided and checked all the information on the registration form and then signed the form, mail it along with the correct payment in the envelope provided (see "Procedures for U.S. Mail Registration" below). The registration form is processed by computer; therefore, a photocopied or faxed registration form will not be accepted. See "Test Dates" for the submission deadline corresponding to each Video Performance Assessment score report date.
If you are concerned that you may be mailing your registration materials too close to the deadline, you may choose to use one of the U.S. Postal Service expedited delivery services to ensure that your registration materials arrive at Evaluation Systems on time. The delivery service that you choose must deliver to a U.S. post office box. See "Contact Information" to obtain the RICA mailing address.
Payment. Payment must be made at the time of registration by personal check, cashier's check, or money order. See "Test Fees and Payment Policies" for complete information about registration fees and payment policies.
Confirmation. After you have registered for the RICA Video Performance Assessment, you will receive a materials packet (see "Test Dates").
Notice of Error in Registration
For the RICA Video Performance Assessment, if your registration form is incomplete or illegible or if the correct payment is not enclosed, your registration materials will be returned unprocessed with a letter advising you of the error. This may result in a delay in your submission until the next submission deadline for the program year.
