If you finished testing all of your Spanish Reading SBA students, we encourage you to please schedule your UPS pickup right away by going to our UPS Pickup Request Tool

If you need a UPS Return Shipping (RS) label, please be sure to contact the Measured Progress NM helpdesk as soon as possible in order for us to provide an electronic version of the UPS RS label right away. There are three ways you can return your PBT materials:

  1. You may schedule your own UPS pickup request via the online services site until Monday, May 7, 2018 at the latest. (Please ensure to have your UPS Return Service (RS) Label ready when placing your pickup request)
  2. You may hand off your sealed box of PBT materials, with corresponding UPS return shipping (RS) label affixed to the box, to your daily UPS driver, if you have one.
  3. You may drop off your sealed box of PBT materials, with corresponding UPS return shipping (RS) label affixed to the box, at your local UPS store.

If you use either option 2 or 3 above, please be sure to notify the Measured Progress helpdesk via e-mail at or call 1-877-676-6722.
