Does anyone know what the College Board is looking for with regard to the psychological testing requireed for granting extended time for the SAT? My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD (no LD) in 1st grade and has had a 504 Plan allowing additional time for testing. With that additional time, she has obtained a 3.9 GPA as a sophomore but just took the PSAT and did not answer 30 questions on the test due to lack of time. She actually did OK but we know she could perform much better if she had the ability to actually finish the test. The College Board is requesting two of the following:
Nelson Denny Reading Test, with standard time and extended time measures Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test (SDRT)
Stanford Diagnostic Math Test (SDMT)
Woodcock-Johnson III Fluency Measures
Test of Written Language-Third Edition (TOWL-3)
I am assuming that the College Board wants to see a significant improvement when additional time is given...do you know what else they may be looking for?
What are other experiences people have had with "successfully" (nor not) requesting additional time?
