Planning for Disability Testing Accommodations During a Pandemic
From college admissions tests to bar examinations, COVID-19 has rapidly transformed the condition, manner, and duration in which standardized testing is being administered. Testing modifications that many testing entities once viewed as impossible and/or fundamental alterations have been quickly implemented for the sake of preserving the test, but often at the expense of examinees with disabilities.
This program will provide disability civil rights practitioners, school administrators, clinicians, parents, and students with a real-time update on the state of standardized testing during our current public health crisis. Covered topics shall include: available accommodations; application requirements; case law updates; a primer on artificial intelligence and remote proctoring; and special considerations for in-person testing.
