The vast majority of accommodations will be handled in the Digital Adaptive Bluebook environment.
Students with extended time will receive extended time in the computer’s timer. Students will not be able to end a section early to move to the next one.
If a student needs different accommodations for the digital test than for the paper test, the SSD coordinator can modify the requested accommodations in the College Board system.
For any accommodations that cannot be handled within the digital testing environment, a longer paper-based version is available. As of this writing (2/26/23), the guidelines for which accommodations qualify for paper testing have not been made clear.
English-learners will continue to receive accommodations during School Day SAT Administrations (only) including translated test directions, use of bilingual word-to-word dictionaries, and time and a half (+50%) extended time. To qualify for these accommodations, students must be designated by their school as an English learner and receive the same accommodations at school.
New: Starting in Fall 2023, accommodations for PSAT 8/9 must be requested and approved by the College Board. The process for requesting accommodations for SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10 will remain the same.
