Voices of University Students with ADHD about Test-Taking: Behaviors, Needs, and Strategies
Ofiesh, Nicole; Moniz, Erin; Bisagno, Joan
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v28 n1 p109-120 Spr 2015
In order to understand the test-taking behavior, needs, and strategies of postsecondary students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), focus group comments from 17 university students with ADHD were analyzed. These comments formed the basis for a series of research studies that are in progress regarding test-taking and individuals with ADHD. The overarching goal of the current research agenda is to identify methods and instruments that disability service providers (DSP) can use in order to support decisions about test accommodations for students with ADHD. To accomplish this goal it is necessary to first identify specific test-taking behaviors that postsecondary students with, and without, ADHD demonstrate. This practice brief describes those test-taking behaviors that were self-reported during focus groups and is intended to raise awareness about the test-taking characteristics of postsecondary students with ADHD.
