This study investigated the relationship between the use of extended time testing accommodations and academic achievement in college students with learning disabilities.
A total of 127 postsecondary students with learning disabilities participated. Participants attended an unidentified private liberal arts college in the U.S.
Student GPA over the first year of college coursework was the dependent variable.
The group that received extended time accommodations had an average first year GPA that was 0.39 points higher than the group that did not use accommodations. Limitations of the study were reported, and future research possibilities were suggested.
