I have an IEP (Individualized Educational Plan) at my high school and receive extended time for state testing.
Can I receive additional time when I take the ACT or SAT?
Students who receive extended testing time as an IEP accommodation/modification
at their home school can have their counselor or Disability Coordinator apply
for special testing accommodations when taking the ACT or SAT. This is a timely
process so it is recommended that you do not wait until the last minute. When
taking the ACT with accommodations, there are several levels…one level is to
receive extended time at a national test center…another level is to receive extended
time at a student’s home school…another level is to receive extended time across
multiple days. ACT will determine what level the student qualifies for based on the
accommodations included in their IEP at the high school. When receiving any level
of special accommodations on the ACT, students can only take the test using the
testing windows established by ACT.
