It is important to consider the following in determining appropriate test accommodations:
- The learning and communication background of the deaf student
- What the test is trying to measure, such as its purpose, the goal and design
- Test security and how accommodations support the integrity of the test
Utilizing the interactive process, the team of the student, instructor and disability services professional should work to match accommodations that allow the student to show their true ability and knowledge without impacting what the test wants to measure.
