Testing with Extended Time on the SAT® I: Effects for Students with Learning Disabilities. Research Notes. RN-08
Camara, Wayne J.; Schneider, Dianne
College Entrance Examination Board
The number of students requesting accommodations has increased in recent years, and the effects of extended time have become increasingly important as this is the only accommodation for 7 of 10 of these students completing the SAT I. Allowing learning disabled students to retest with extended time clearly enables them to improve their SAT I scores, but gains associated with extended time are generally modest, with mean gains of 32 and 26 points on the verbal and math scales, respectively. Additional time should serve as a compensating factor for students with learning disabilities, but time and a half or double time may overcompensate for some students, permitting them to respond more leisurely and result in overprediction of college performance.
