Overview of TASC Test Accommodations

CTB/McGraw-Hill supports the intent of the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 and is committed to supporting access to the TASC test for individuals with disabilities. To this end, the TASC test design includes accessible formats and allowable resources that are available to all examinees.

In addition, examinees with a documented need may apply for special testing accommodations. Examinees have access to three types of support during TASC test testing:

Allowable Resources: Tools, procedures, and materials that an examinee may use to support test taking include items such as earplugs, magnifying glasses, or seat cushions. No formal approval is required for the use of allowable resources. In some cases a notification form must be filled out and provided to the testing center prior to testing so that the testing center can prepare to support the request.

Alternate Formats: TASC test is available in English and Spanish in alternate formats including Braille and large print editions. To receive alternate formats, the examinee must provide prior notification to the testing center.

Special Testing Accommodations: Special testing accommodations, such as extra time, are intended to account for the effects of a person’s disability. Special accommodations are only approved for examinees with appropriate documentation diagnosing their disability or disorder and supporting the need for specified accommodations.

Special testing accommodations must be approved by CTB/McGraw-Hill. The examinee must submit a completed TASC Test Special Testing Accommodations Request Form to CTB/McGraw-Hill in advance of the scheduled test date; CTB will process and send decision letters within 30 working days of the receipt of request forms.
