ACT Will Honor IEP, 504 Plan Accommodations
[Source: Disability Scoop]
A major standardized test maker is taking steps to make it easier for students with disabilities to access accommodations.
The nonprofit ACT, which makes the test of the same name, said it will automatically grant allowable accommodations that are included in students’ existing individualized education programs or 504 plans. The change will take effect starting with the 2021-2022 school year when students register for the ACT with accommodations, the nonprofit said. That will mean that students who already qualify for services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act won’t have to go through a separate process to prove their eligibility for accommodations when taking the ACT.
