The predictive validity of the SAT I: Reasoning Test was examined for students who took the test with an extended time accommodation for a learning disability. The sample included college students with learning disabilities who took the SAT I between 1995 and 1998 with extended time accommodations. First year grade point average (FGPA) was used as a measure of student performance. Although positive, the adjusted correlation between FGPA and SAT scores was lower for test-takers with a learning disability than has been shown in prior research on test-takers without disabilities. Two appendixes are included: (1) Examples of SAT Accommodations; and (2) Guidelines for Documentation.
