PD Recap: All About Accommodations and the GED® Test
We are committed to providing students with full access to the GED test. Anyone with disabilities and test accommodations are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Accommodations includes things such as extra testing time, extra breaks, and a separate testing room.
Accommodations are available to students with learning and cognitive disorders (LCD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders (ADHD), psychological and psychiatric disorders (EPP), and physical disabilities and chronic health conditions (PCH).
Students are also able to change what their tests look like on their computer screen to make it easier to read. Students are able to modify screen color combinations, text size, and highlight text.
To apply for accommodations, students must first create an account on GED.com. Within their GED account, they will select yes for modified testing then click on “My Accommodations” on the dashboard. This will navigate you to create an account on the online accommodations system. After completing your account, you will then receive a link to apply and start the accommodation request process. For a more in-depth explanation of the process and how to go about requesting accommodations, navigate here.
It is important to remember that it may take up to 30 days for your request to be reviewed. However, you are able to check the status of your request by signing into your GED® account and clicking on the “My Accommodations” link.
Students are also able to appeal against an accommodation decision if they are unhappy with the outcome. Just click on the “Request an Appeal” button in the Accommodations System to start the appeal process and be sure to include additional documentation along with the appeal form.
