Qualifying Scores
  • There are three dimensions used to identify
    students who qualify for Challenge Aptitude,
    Achievement, and Performance. In most cases, a
    student must have one qualifying item in two
    different dimensions.

    aptitude score is 96NP (National Percentile) or
    greater. If this is the case, no other scores
