Testing, Resumes, & Forms
All contest testing and the professional development assessment (formerly called PDP) will be completed online during the testing window of March 2-10, 2023. Instructions for this will be made available closer to the conference. It is EXTREMELY important that all registered competitors use a personal email address to ensure they receive any testing credentials sent to them. This is the responsibility of the advisor and student to ensure that is done. ALL competitors, with the exception of middles school competitors, are required to complete the professional development assessment which will account for a portion of their contest score. ALL competitors, with the exception of middle school competitors, are required to complete the skilled Contest Written Test during the testing window of March 2-10, 2023. Some competitions do not have a skilled Contest Written Test. Those contests are listed in the contest updates page and below.
Middle School contestants are exempt from all testing requirements, both contest and professional development.
ADA contests are exempt from all testing requirements, both contest and professional development.

Testing Study Guides
There are no study guides available for contest testing unless noted in the contest updates or technical standards. Contestants should study through the core competencies and other material listed under "knowledge performance" in the technical standards for information or hints of testing items. All tests, with the exception of state only contests, are created by the national technical chair and/or committee.
There is a study guide for the Professional Development Test. That can be found HERE.
ALL competitors, with the exception of middle school competitors, are required to digitally turn in a 1-page resume (pdf format) in advance of the SLSC. Instructions for this will be made available closer to the conference. Certain contests will also require a hard copy of a resume, which may or may not have different specifications from the digitally required resume. This is in addition to the requirement of turning in a digital copy in advance. Both are scorable in different areas with the digital copy fulfilling the resume requirement of the competition. Any contest requiring a separate/hard-copy resume will be notated on the Contest Updates page and this page.
Middle School contestants are exempt from the 1-page digital resume requirement.
Contests requiring both digital resume in advance AND separate/hard-copy resume on contest day:
