When will new test examiner opportunities be offered?

Our registered test examiners receive email announcements each time a new test opportunity becomes available.  You can also check current studies here.

What do I get for participating?

For each subject you test and that we include in the study, you receive:

  • LinguiSystems’ product test credits for EACH subject completed and included in the study.  The amount varies with each study.
  • Acknowledgment in the Examiner’s Manual.
Test credits may not be used in combination with other offers or to purchase distributed products and apps.  Click here for a list of ineligible products.

Subjects are not compensated by LinguiSystems.

How can I use my test credit?

You can use your test credits as soon as they are issued.  We’ll send you an email with the amount of credit you earned.

You can order LinguiSystems products only.  You cannot redeem test credits for distributed products or apps.  Click here for a list of ineligible products.

Test credits can only be redeemed with a phone order.  Call us at 800-776-4332 or 309-755-2300, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. CST, Monday-Friday.  Test credits may not be used on web orders.

When will my test credit expire?

All test credits issued before May 1st, 2014 will expire on July 31, 2014. There will be no exceptions and no extensions!

Test credits normally expire one year from the time they are issued.  

Why do you ask for my ASHA number and/or state licensure number during registration?

Test examiners must hold a Master’s degree or higher in speech-language pathology and have earned a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC).  In order to maintain our high level of standards in testing, our registration forms include ASHA and state licensure information to verify our test examiners meet these standards.  Find out more about entering your licensure information below.

Do I need to enter both my ASHA number and my state licensure number to participate?

No.  You can enter either your ASHA license number OR your state license number.  We know that every state has different licensure requirements.  If your state does not require a license to practice, you may enter a teaching certificate number or other state certification number in the state licensure field on the registration form.  We welcome all SLPs with a Master’s level or higher who have earned and maintained their CCC.

I’m not a member of ASHA.  Can I still participate?

Yes.  You can enter your state licensure number.  We know that every state has different licensure requirements.  If your state does not require a license to practice, you may enter your teaching certificate number or other state certification number in the state licensure field on the registration form.

I’m a graduate student.  Can I register to become a test examiner?

No.  The American Psychological Association (1985, Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing) specifically states that those clinicians participating in standardized testing must hold the highest clinical degree in the specific field of the standardized test.

I’m in my clinical fellowship year (CFY).  Can I participate in testing?

No, not yet.  You need to pass your CCC exam before you can participate in our testing program.

I live outside the U.S. Can I participate in testing?

No.  We exclude test examiners and subjects that live outside of the U.S. because our tests reflect the current U.S. Census Bureau demographics data.  

What computer program do I need to participate?

You’ll need Adobe Reader version 5.0 or above.  This allows you to print the forms which are in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).  Adobe Reader is FREE.  To acquire Adobe Reader, go to http://get.adobe.com/reader

How will I know if LinguiSystems needs me to test more subjects?

Check the subject selection charts often.  When a test study is live on our website and your are registered, you can view the subject selection charts at any time.

How many subjects can I test?

There is no limit but you may only select up to 5 active subjects at a time.

How do I keep track of my completed subjects?

You will have an online account that lists all of your current subjects.  A subject moves from your “Active Subjects” list to your “Completed Subjects” list once we’ve received the subject’s data.  You can get to your subject lists by logging on to your test examiner account here.

How will I know if one of my subjects is not used in the study?

If we have reason to believe that a subject’s information was entered incorrectly or that the test data is invalid, we reserve the right to eliminate that subject.  If a subject is eliminated from the study we will notify you via email BEFORE the test credit release date.

May I get an extension if I can’t get my subjects tested within the timelines?

Yes, though there are exceptions.  If you are unable to complete testing within the initial two week deadline, please email testing@linguisystems.com to request an extension.  Exceptions include extensions beyond the close of the test dates and retest extensions.

How do I access the items to test?  Will I receive anything from LinguiSystems through the mail?

You access everything online.  Permission forms and test forms can be downloaded and printed directly from the website.  If a test requires additional components for testing (i.e. picture stimuli book, CD), we will notify you of that during subject selection.
