The Request and Approval Process Is the Same
Just as with paper tests, SSD coordinators should go to SSD Online to request accommodations for their students with documented disabilities. It may take up to seven weeks to receive approval, so submit requests as early as you can.
Some Accommodations Are Different
Some digital accommodations differ for digital testing because there are no paper testing materials. For example, students approved for large-print test books can take the digital test with an increased font size. All students can use the zoom function. Learn more about digital alternatives.
Most Paper Testing Materials Must Be Ordered
If you're testing students with accommodations that require paper testing materials, you may need to order them. Order PSAT 8/9 materials on the test ordering website. For other tests, follow the instructions provided in your school’s training materials or by your department of education.
