Quick Guide to the Right Test
Testing With Accommodations Vs Special Testing
It is very important to note that there are 2 types of testing with accommodations. You (your child) may be in learning support, receive accommodations on standardized tests BUT NOT be eligible for "Special Testing".
Testing With Accommodations
If you (your student) receives 50% extra time on sections of the ACT or SAT, and/or a large print text book and/or large block answer sheet (often stated as no bubbles/ Scantron), or indeed any combination of these accommodations, Chances are that they take the regular testing at a national Test Center and receive these accommodations through Regular Testing with Accommodations.
- Charlotte Catholic High School is a National Test Center for SAT BUT NOT FOR ACT . CCHS therefore offers the regular SAT (for which students can still receive accommodations) AND (on desginated testing dates) CCHS offers special Testing.
- Students with Special Testing accommodations CANNOT use these accommodations at CCHS regular testing dates.
- Students with regular testing accommoadtions CANNOT use their accommodations at a special testing date.
- CCHS does not offer the regular ACT. if you have regular testing with aaccommodations YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE THE ACT at Charlotte Catholic High School.
- We do however offer the ACT Special Testing . We are offering this once more this school calendar year. The date for this test is April 4th 2020.
- IF you wish to take the ACT or SAT outside of a CCHS testing window, you can sign up at another test center such as Myers Park to take the test.
Special Testing is directly administered through Learning Support at Charlotte Catholic and are administered separately to the school wide testing.
Special Testing is for students who receive accommodations such as:
- MP3 Audio
- Reader (Read to by a protcor)
