- An individual can take a test right on the computer, or you can manually key the individual's responses from an answer sheet into the program.
- After payment of a modest license fee, you pay for only the tests and administrations you need.
- You receive a counter that plugs into the USB port on the back of your computer. It keeps track of the number of test administrations you've scored.
- Order additional administrations 24/7 via the Internet with a credit card purchase. You receive immediate access to these administrations.
