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 that feel as though 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, email your responses to ebridges at acb.org. I encourage you to send
this note to affiliate lists. As always, please let me know if you have any
questions or concerns.
