Are students with temporary impairments such as broken bones, concussions, or the like eligible to receive accommodations when taking the SSAT?
August 4, 2021
No. Students expected to make a full recovery from their injury are not eligible to receive testing accommodations when completing the SSAT.
In general, it is EMA's recommendation that any student who experiences an unexpected accident resulting in temporary impairment postpone testing until after they are fully recovered to ensure test performance is an accurate reflection of their true abilities.
