Is it legal for employers toprohibit you from seeing the results of your prescreening test?

The teacher profile survey is about testing teachers to see if they meet the qualifications but schools will not allow applicants to view the results. Is that legal? I do not see how it can be.

Yes it is legal for an employer not to allow the results of an employemnt pretest to be divulged to a prosepctive employee. The reason in that such a test is the property of an employer. Accordingly, unless the terms of the testing specifically give an employee the right to view their results, they can legally be prohibited from doing so.
