Online Testing

     Beginning with the Fall 2017 sport exams, the MPSSAA has moved its testing platform onto a new NFHS Exam system.  We believe the new system will provide all officials a better user experience in taking the NFHS Exams.  This is in fact nothing new as the MPSSAA facilitated the NFHS Exams through this system prior to the NFHS and Arbiter partnership.  All NFHS Rules Exams for the MPSSAA can be found on https://exams.nfhs.org/.  Please see the list of start and end dates for each of the sports exams listed below for your convenience.   All users in 2017 will need to register and create an account.  This simple set-up process takes about two minutes and provides the NFHS and MPSSAA all the necessary information for the collection of results.  The positives of the new system include:

  • a more convenient username and password retrieval process;
  • ability to save, exit, and return to the exam;
  • ability to flag questions and return to those questions throughout the exam;
  • ability to use all your allocated attempts to reach your desired score. 

     The MPSSAA has sent each association these step-by-step instructions for registering and creating an account to be distributed to their membership.  In addition, rules clinics will emphasize this change in procedure as well as the updated information here.  Unchanged is the fact that each official will have a maximum of five attempts to achieve a passing score of 75 percent, with an 85 percent minimum score required for a post-season state tournament assignment.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact Donnee GrayJason Bursick, or call the MPSSAA office directly at 410-767-0555.
