Online Testing

     Individuals who are interested in taking the National Federation Rules Exams for any state-sponsored sport must first be registered through their local officials' board or association on the Arbiter Sports website. The exception to this is potential track and field, swimming, and diving officials must register as an individual on the Arbiter Sports website.  Please read and follow all registration instructions on Arbiter carefully!!

     The exam and review schedule for fall, winter, and spring sports is located below for your handy reference.  In order to be eligible to officiate interscholastic contests, MPSSAA requires each official to score a minimum (passing score) of 75%.  In order to be eligible to officiate a State Tournament assignment, a minimum score of 85% is required.  Individuals may take each test up to five times in order to attain the desired score or merely for self-enrichment.  However, once a score of 90% is attained, no additional test attempts can be taken.  If an official receives a test score below 90% there is an automatic message sent that they have failed the test.  This is only because we have set the passing mark at 90% so that those officials who score between 75% and 89% that want to retake the test may do so, therefore do not panic if you get that message.  There will also be a "review period" which begins immediately after the test closing date/time and will last for a week.  Be sure to look for online rules quizzes posted by some of our State Rules Interpreters prior to and throughout the sports season on the MPSSAA website and/or the Arbiter Sports website.

     Individual test status reports and test results are available by logging in to Arbiter Sports and clicking on "Central Hub" on the main page.  Next, select the link that says "2016-17 MPSSAA Officials".  When that page opens, click on "Testing".  Read all instructions carefully regarding saving, printing, and distributing your test results.  Association/Board Administrators can now access the test scores for all of their officials, but each individual official is still responsible for maintaining a hard copy of their exam results.

     If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Donnee Gray, Coordinator of Officials (410-767-0375) or Arbiter Support (801-576-9436).  You may also check the Arbiter Support website for more information.
