This paper explores how to balance test security and accessibility on licensure, credentialing, and certification exams. It examines K-12 test security policies related to educational assessments across states to discover lessons learned about how to meet accessibility needs of individuals with disabilities while minimizing test security risks. It then discusses how licensure and certification programs can adapt those lessons and policies to ensure exam score validity for all candidates without jeopardizing exam security.
