In the majority of cases, the customer purchasing an assessment is also the qualified user that will administer the assessment. The ability to purchase an assessment depends on that customer’s individual qualification level.
However, in some cases, purchasing agents, administrative assistants, financial officers, etc. may need to purchase assessments on behalf of a qualified user who will administer the assessment.
To purchase on behalf of a qualified user, both the purchaser and qualified user must have their own PearsonAssessments.com website accounts and both also be associated/linked to an organization level account (clinic, hospital, school, school district, etc.). Customers can be linked to multiple organization accounts. These can be added at initial registration, checkout, or under your profile’s Accounts section. You can learn more about organization account processes on the organizational accounts page.
Once both web accounts are linked to an organization(s) account, a purchaser may then add items to the cart and enter checkout.
During the checkout process, the purchaser will be prompted to select an organization account. Selecting an account will open up access to that organization’s connected qualified users in the next step. If you have not ordered for the qualified user previously, you will need to select ‘add new qualified user’ and enter the user's email address. If a qualified user’s name is grayed out, that means they do not meet the qualification level of the highest item in your cart.
Once an appropriate level qualified user is selected, the purchaser will be able to finalize their checkout.
