Special accommodations for exams include:
- Audio exams
- Scribes or readers
- Recorded responses
You can request special accommodations for ADLC exams and for Provincial Diploma Exams.
Requests for special exam accommodations must be submitted with appropriate documentation, such as a copy of:
- a recent psychometric assessment,
- a recent Individualized Pupil Plan (IPP),
- an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP),
- a written recommendation from a physician.
If you’ve received special accommodations for previous exams, please provide signed documents from the teacher of that course indicating what those accommodations were. In cases where students are not able to demonstrate that they’ve received special accommodations for previous school exams, Alberta Education may decline to provide special accommodations for Provincial Diploma Exams. If you are applying for special exam accommodations when registering through adlc.ca, please have copies of your documentation handy, you will be asked to scan or take a picture of it and upload it.
Students must apply well in advance of the anticipated date of an Alberta Education Diploma Exam to receive special accommodations. They can find more information in their myPass account.
