With tests that can be securely taken in homes or proctored in schools, the IDAT is growing its list of school partners. As a school partner, you can add parameters and limitations for how students and parents can interact with the IDAT for admissions to your school. Schools are our key partners, and we seek to make your admissions processes smooth, reliable, and secure, while helping your school grow and prosper. If your school has needs for student privacy, exclusivity, or confidentiality of results or testing, please contact us to see how we can help.
USE IDAT TEST AS YOUR ADMISSION TEST
The simplest way for a school to connect and work with IDAT is to accept the test as proof of academic level for the purpose of admissions. There are no contractual or financial obligations. Schools simply indicate in their admissions processes that students may submit the IDAT with application forms for consideration of student candidates. Schools need to let IDAT know that they will accept the IDAT and provide an email and contact for receiving the test results. The school will then be added to the drop-down menu of receiving institutes on our website. With schools’ permission, IDAT will also announce the partnership and add a short blurb, school logo, and description on IDAT’s website for candidates to learn more about our partners.
Parents and students will independently apply and pay for the IDAT, and schools receive results when they are ready. This allows for students all over the world to take the test in secure environments, and schools can simply receive the results within 48 hours.
PURCHASE IN ONE GO AND USE IT AT YOUR PACE
This partnership means that IDAT is, for most purposes, the test that your school is using for admissions. The school works with IDAT and purchases and arranges proctoring of the IDAT for their students. This can be one at a time or on mass test days.
Schools which choose to purchase the test at a discounted bulk rate can then pass along the tests to students at this rate. This requires a bulk-buying contract and also requires schools to arrange proctoring of these tests in their school or partner schools. The bulk-buying contract sells the IDAT at special prices, and schools have a sufficient length of time to use these tests, by arranging test dates and IDAT allocating test-codes to the school as required.
Please contact IDAT for our special prices and to review contracts for bulk-buying.
WORLD SUPPORT PARTNER
USE IDAT TEST AND BENEFIT THE SCHOOL
The charity partnership is another simple way for schools to connect with IDAT while changing the world. Schools agree to accept the IDAT but sign an agreement that sees 10% of test fees returned to the school, school’s charity of choice or foundation. The money is transferred annually as directed by the school, and IDAT will announce what donations have been made. This cannot be combined with a bulk-buying contract.
Schools become an IDAT Partner and provide an email and contact person for receiving the test results. The school will then be added to the drop-down menu of receiving institutes on our website, and IDAT will also add a short blurb, logo and school description on IDAT’s website for candidates to learn more about our partners. IDAT will also announce the partnership and charity donation on social media, after consultation and approval from the school.
Parents and students will independently apply and pay for the IDAT, and schools receive results when they are ready. This allows for students all over the world to take the test, and schools can simply receive the results.
JOIN IDAT PLATFORM AND PROMOTE THE SCHOOL TO THE WORLD
This partnership is for schools which actively recruit students from all over the globe and want to promote their school to students, parents, and educational agents.
Schools may interact as a bulk-buying partner, bulk-buying or educational or world support partner. With this partnership, the school may also opt to be a marketing partner. As a value-add for schools in certain regions of the world, the IDAT team can provide webinars, introductions, conferences (when allowed) and recruitment fairs to our schools. The schools must allow IDAT to add them to their website with a blurb, logo, and description.
The IDAT marketing team will contact the school to discuss your needs for recruitment, branding and promotion to overseas students, agents, and parents. As a marketing partner, you will liaise with the IDAT team to decide on ways to promote your brand in key overseas recruitment marketing such as China, Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, and Indonesia. These marketing opportunities are limited; the IDAT team would like to discuss your needs to see if we have availability for your school.
Please contact IDAT for further information.
TESTING CENTRE PARTNER
PROVIDE TESTS FOR INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL STUDENTS
For schools in key cities and areas without an official testing centre already in place, IDAT is always looking for quality partners to allow their students and outside students to be proctored to take the test in a secure, safe, educational environment. Your school will receive a portion of the test fees and must be an IDAT partner to be considered for this.
Schools must be an IDAT Partner, Bulk-buying or World Support Partner to be considered as a testing centre. There are strict testing conditions, confidentiality and parameters to be followed to administer the IDAT. Contact us to discuss becoming an IDAT Testing Centre Partner.
SCHOLARSHIP TESTING PARTNER
USE IDAT TESTS FOR SCHOLARSHIP STUDENTS
IDAT has a suite of scholarship application testing products which can be tailored to your school needs. Whether you want students to purchase and arrange directly through IDAT, or the school would like to facilitate, we can arrange for your students to use all or part of the IDAT to assess their excellence and abilities for scholarship reasons.
This can include all or part of the test and additions and customisations can be added if there are more than 20 students taking the test. The pricing of the test is flexible based on volume, customisation, and inclusions for the test. Contact us today for a consultation on what the IDAT can do for your scholarship needs.
