ACB SEEKS TESTING ACCOMMODATIONS HORROR STORIES

While Halloween has come and gone, testing accommodations concerning the GMAT, GRE, LSAT, and others have haunted and continue to horrify blind or visually impaired students across the country. ACB has anecdotal evidence that the administration of these and other admissions tests by organizations like Pearson Education have been completely inadequate for many years.

We are seeking concrete information from members who feel that they experienced discrimination before and during the standardized testing process over the past two years.

Please answer the questions below, providing as much detail as possible. This information will allow ACB to approach testing entities, Congress, and the federal government to highlight egregious inequities in this arena. When finished, e-mail your responses to ebridges@acb.org. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
