Education/Rights – Justice Department Issues Guidance on Testing

The Department of Justice (DOJ) issued technical assistance on the obligation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of testing entities to ensure that test scores of individuals with disabilities accurately reflect aptitude, achievement, or skill.  The document discusses who is entitled to testing accommodations, what types of testing accommodations must be provided, and what documentation may be required. The document also discusses prohibited flagging policies and proper reporting of test scores. See the Guidance Document or to find out more about the ADA, visit www.ada.gov or call the DOJ’s toll-free ADA Information Line at 1-800-514-0301 or 1-800-514-0383 (TDD).
