GROUP ORDER INFO

Purchasing as a group?

  • What is a Group Order? A ‘group order’ refers to an order in which the schools administering testing belong to a central district, diocese or charter organization; If the district, diocese or charter would prefer to collect all testing data and results within one centralized repository, but would prefer to have each school billed individually for it’s own testing, this results in a group order. In such a case, the central organization should fill out and submit a Group Information Sheet, while the individual schools should each submit an order and reference the Group Owner on the order form.
  • Group Owner: A central organization (Central district, charter, or diocese) that wishes to collect, view and analyze testing data of all associated schools. A Tenant (a user account) will be created for the Group Owner and all testing data for associated schools will be aggregated and available to view. A Group Owner should fill out the Group Information Sheet
  • Group Member: A school or organization for which all testing data will be included in the Group Owner’s Tenant. A Group Member can view their own testing data. A Group Member should fill out a standard Order form and reference the Group Owner Name on the standard Order form.
  • How do I know if I should fill out the Group Information Sheet? This form is to be filled out by a contact with the Group Owner. It is designed to collect information such as billing preferences, contact info, etc., so that orders placed by your Group Members are processed correctly.
