F7 - Disability Documentation: Who Needs It Anyway?


Oct 28, 2016 10:30am ‐ Oct 28, 2016 11:30am

Description

Recent directives from the Department of Justice (DOJ) to testing agencies suggest that the types of disability documentation being requested by testing agencies (e.g., the College Board, ACT, ETS, GMAC, LSAC, NBME, etc.) has become burdensome for test takers with disabilities. As a result, there has been much discussion during the last year among high-stakes testing entities, with implications for postsecondary disability service providers, about what do differently. At the center of the debate is the importance and demerits of disability documentation in determining reasonable accommodations on standardized tests.

Speaker(s):

  • Loring Brinckerhoff, Ph.D., Director, Office of Disability Policy, Educational Testing Service (ETS)
