CLT is happy to provide testing accommodations to students with documented disabilities.
Testing accommodations are individualized adaptations that ensure the test measures a student’s skills and aptitude rather than the negative effects of a person’s disability. Testing accommodations are meant to remove the barrier an individual may have to the exam – not to guarantee improved performance, a passing score, test completion, or any other specific outcome.
Our Accommodations Process
For School Administrators
Here are your steps to submit an Accommodations Request Form on behalf of a student enrolled at your school.
For Students and Parents
Here are your steps to submit an Accommodations Request Form for yourself or your child.
Does CLT accommodate people with disabilities?
Yes. Testing accommodations are individualized and considered on a case-by-case basis for the CLT and CLT10 examinations. Regardless of diagnosis, all individuals seeking disability-related accommodations must provide evidence that their condition rises to the level of a disability and provide information about functional limitations in areas central to daily life. Accommodations for the CLT10 and CLT must be submitted to CLT for approval at least four weeks prior to the test administration date.
It is no longer necessary to submit requests for accommodations for the CLT8 exam. It is the responsibility of schools, co-ops, and homeschool parents to provide accommodations for the CLT8 that reflect what the student requires in normal classroom settings. Accommodations for the CLT10 and CLT must be submitted to CLT for approval, even if a student has been granted accommodations for the CLT8 in prior academic years.
Do I need to reapply for my accommodations each time I test?
Reapplications are not necessary once a student has been approved for testing accommodations on the CLT or CLT10. If you have previously been granted testing accommodations for the CLT8 and would like to receive them for the CLT or CLT10, please apply for testing accommodations for the CLT or CLT10 you will be taking.
What testing accommodations are offered on the CLT10 and CLT?
Our most commonly granted accommodations are extended time (25%, 50%, and 100% extended time) and accommodations for students with Type 1 Diabetes. Other, more specific, accommodations may be requested in our Accommodations Request Form.
Will my test scores show that I received accommodations?
No. Your accommodations status will never be shared with a college or university and will be kept confidential in order to maintain your privacy.
As of July 1, 2022, it is no longer necessary to submit requests for accommodations for the CLT8 exam. It is the responsibility of schools, co-ops, and homeschool parents to provide accommodations for the CLT8 that reflect what the student requires in normal classroom settings.
If a student has previously received testing accommodations for the CLT or CLT10, those accommodations are provided going forward based on the approval period sent out. Please contact us if you have any questions about your specific case.
