Resources for Evaluators

ETS receives more than 15,000 requests each year for accommodations from individuals with disabilities for our graduate and professional tests. Testing agencies such as ETS are responsible for providing candidates with disabilities access to these tests. Based on the quality of the documentation, the qualifications of the professional who certifies the existence of the disability and the demonstrated need, ETS provides reasonable accommodations to ensure fairness to all test takers. The evaluator's role in this process is highly significant.
