Requesting Testing Accommodations - Adult Education and Literacy Services
The purpose of accommodations is to provide candidates with full access to the GED® test. However, accommodations are not a guarantee of improved performance or test completion. GED® Testing Service provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations to individuals with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for accommodations.
Test accommodations are individualized and considered on a case-by-case basis. Consequently, no single type of 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 accommodations.
Test-takers seeking accommodations will register at GED® website. During the registration process, test-takers seeking accommodations will select, “yes” when asked whether they intend to apply for testing modifications (accommodations) based upon a documented disability. After selecting “yes”, test-takers will be directed to the Reasonable Adjustment Request System (RARS) which will provide directions for submitting documentation for the accommodation request.
The GED Testing Service® Accommodations Team will make all accommodations decisions. If approved, test-takers will be given specific instructions for how to schedule their accommodated GED® Test If not approved, test-takers will be advised about the appeal procedures.
