12. What about test accommodations?
Test accommodations are considered on a case-by-case basis and include things such as extra testing time and extra breaks. The purpose of accommodations is to provide candidates with full access to their test and is not a guarantee of improved performance or test completion. Test accommodations are individualized and considered on a case-by-case basis. All candidates requesting accommodations must provide appropriate documentation. Disability types include learning and other cognitive disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, psychological and psychiatric disorders, physical disorders and chronic health conditions.
Commonly requested accommodations include extra time (25%, 50%, 100%), extra “stop-the-clock” breaks, a separate room and a reader/recorder. All accommodations available at test centers are available for online testing except a reader/recorder–we are actively working on a solution. Students can request accommodations through their GED.com accounts.
