Test Accomodation for Certification Aspirants

Test accommodations

CertiPlus Global Certification Programs is committed to providing access for all individuals with disabilities. Depending on your geographic region, test accommodations may also be known as “special arrangements” or “reasonable adjustments."

What are test accommodations?

The purpose of test accommodations is to provide candidates with full access to the test. However, test accommodations are not a guarantee of improved performance or test completion. CertiPlus Global Certification Programs provides reasonable and appropriate test accommodations to individuals with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for test accommodations.

CertiPlus Global Certification Programs test accommodations may include things such as:

  • A separate testing room
  • Extra testing time
  • A Reader or Recorder

Test accommodations are individualized and considered on a case-by-case basis. Consequently, no single type of test accommodation (e.g. extra time) would necessarily be appropriate for all individuals with disabilities. Simply demonstrating that an individual meets diagnostic criteria for a particular disorder does not mean that the person is automatically entitled to test accommodations.

What test accommodations are right for me?

Specific test accommodations should be related to the functional limitations. For example, a functional limitation might be impaired mobility, due to loss of a hand, which prevents the test-taker from writing, typing, and recording answers. The appropriate test accommodation might be to have the assistance of a human recorder/scribe. It is essential that the documentation of the disability provide a clear explanation of the current functional limitation(s) and a rationale for each requested test accommodation. You should work with your doctor or other professionals who know you to determine which test accommodations are appropriate for you.

All candidates who are requesting test accommodations because of a disability must provide appropriate documentation of their condition and how it is expected to affect their ability to take the test under standard conditions. This may include additional supporting documentation from the professional who diagnosed the condition.
