These changes in the examination also referred to as accommodations, must be given approval by the office of disability services of a college or by PSI examining venues. Who is eligible for accommodations? Generally, accommodations are reserved for individuals suffering a disability or who would otherwise face challenges during the examination. For instance, an individual with motor skills problems may be eligible to use a trackball mouse in the exam. Another individual with a medical problem may qualify for more time during the test. Various factors may necessitate a request for examination accommodations. It is not guaranteed that an accommodation will be approved.
