RICA Test Dates – Current Listing

RICA Test Dates & How to Choose the Right Date for You.

Below is a current listing of the 2020-21 RICA test dates. The RICA (Reading Instruction Competence Assessment) Written Exam is now offered through computer-based testing only. You may schedule your individual RICA exam date year-round by appointment during any of the testing windows listed below. Alternatively, candidates may also complete the RICA Video Performance Assessment (see submission deadlines below if you plan to use this option).

When choosing your RICA test date, you should consider how you plan to prepare. If you will be taking a RICA Prep Class, you will want to ensure that all session dates fall before your exam date. How long before your test date to take a prep class will vary based on your individual needs, but most of our students find that taking a class one or two weeks before their RICA test dates works best, so that the information taught is still “fresh in their minds” on exam day.

If you plan to take a RICA Prep Class, we encourage you to enroll early to ensure your space and to take advantage of our registration discounts. Please click below to view current coupon codes.

If you plan to enroll in one-on-one RICA Tutoring, we recommend you view our Tutoring Calendar for information on our tutors’ available session dates. Keep in mind the number of sessions you plan to schedule. Typically, tutoring is most effective when you allow some time for independent study and review between sessions, so you may wish to schedule a series of tutoring dates several weeks or more in advance of your RICA test date.

One of the most flexible and effective test preparation options is on-demand RICA Online Prep. With engaging instructional videos, interactive practice tests, and innovative Smart-STEM Virtual Tutoring, you get the same great instruction you would in our live classes, and more, available 24/7 at your pace and on your schedule, and you also have the option to get live help if you need it. If you are taking the computer-based RICA Written Exam, you will be able to select your RICA test date year-round by appointment, so this preparation method is especially convenient.
