Standardized Testing and Diabetes
Especially relevant for high school and beyond.
Students may need to request special accommodations during standardized testing sessions, which might include statewide testing, college entrance, advanced placement or International Baccalaureate exams, or graduate school, medical school or law school entrance exams.
For example, it may be necessary to:
- Bring in a blood glucose meter.
- Have access to snacks to treat hypoglycemia.
- Be able to take an extended break, if necessary, to take care of diabetes needs.
Since these types of accomodations are not usually permitted, students must make a formal request to the agency that administers the test or exam.
