Test accommodations are modifications we make to tests or testing conditions that enable people with disabilities and/or limited English-language ability to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a test situation.
The most common modifications are: giving candidates extra time to complete a test, reducing the number of test items, allowing someone else to write down the candidate’s answers for them, and including text-to-speech conversation software which can read the questions aloud. In the case of non-native speakers of English who are not proficient, test accommodations include both bilingual glossaries or test questions translated into their native tongue.
! The PM² Alliance will not retain or share your medical records. Test Accommodation applications are delivered to the Certification Committee’s Eligibility Verification Officer who will arrange for the appropriate Test Accommodation. Once you have completed your exam, your results will be funnelled along with the results of all other candidates to the certification committee, to be evaluated impartially and anonymously.
