The number of high school seniors with a disability who take special versions of the Scholastic Assessment Test has more than doubled over the past eight years.

In 1994, 14,994 seniors took special editions of the S.A.T. In 1987, the first year the College Board recorded the use of such special tests, that number was 6,539.

The College Board has offered special testing arrangements since 1939.

Students with disabilities are allowed such changes in the test format as using large-block answer forms, having an aide read questions and record answers, or using more than the normal time limit to finish the test.
