Details of Exam Accommodations
Accommodations must be appropriate to the impairment within the context of the examination tasks and setting. Please indicate the specific accommodation(s) requested and provide a rationale for each. (Please note that requesting a non-specific accommodation(s) such as “extra time” or “maximum allowable time” will delay the review of your request Examples of specific accommodations include “25% extra testing time” or “a reader to read aloud all questions and answer choices”.
If accommodations are being requested for multiple exam types, a separate application must be completed for each exam. Knowledge and Performance Exams for the same certification are considered different exam types.
For accommodation request, please include supporting documenation including rationale.
Supporting documentation from an evaluator or medical provider who is qualified to diagnose the specific disability must be attached to this request. Because the provision of reasonable accommodations is based on assessment of the current impact of a disability, it is important to provide recent documentation. As the manifestations of a disability may vary over time and in different settings, in most cases, an evaluation should have been conducted within the past three (3) years.
Acceptable documentation must include:
A candidate’s request for exam accommodation(s) will be reviewed only if s/he has filed a complete application and been determined to be eligible for the relevant exam. To maximize flexibility in the scheduling of their exams, candidates are encouraged to submit requests for accommodation(s) at the time they request for exam to be added to their CASLI account. A candidate requesting exam accommodations, who has applied and is eligible for an exam, must have submitted a complete request for accommodation(s) to CASLI and received a response to such request before an exam may be scheduled. The submission of an incomplete request may delay the review of the request or result in its denial. A candidate will receive notification if his/her request is incomplete.
Request Processing and Reconsideration
CASLI may take up to 30 days to evaluate a complete request for accommodations. Official notice of the decision regarding the request will be provided via email at the email address provided by the candidate above. If accommodations are approved, CASLI staff will coordinate with the appropriate test site to arrange for the accommodations. Candidates should not contact a test site unless and until instructed to do so by CASLI staff.
If the requested accommodations are denied, a request for a reconsideration of that decision may be made in writing to CASLI. Please note that requests for reconsideration are generally more effective if they include a specific reason(s) for the request and additional documentation that was not included in the original request.
