Allowable accommodations are available only for test takers with a formalized plan in place (e.g., Individualized Education Plan (IEP), 504 Plan). Accommodations for English Language Learners (ELL) should align with state requirements and guidelines. For reasons associated with assessment standardization, security, and costs, the NOCTI assessments are only offered in English at this time. It is a site’s obligation to ensure learners receive the proper accommodations according to local, state, and federal requirements.  If your accommodation is not addressed below, please direct questions to NOCTI at

Online and paper/pencil credentialing assessments can be administered in up to three sessions for most test titles.

In some cases, paper/pencil administration is necessary to satisfy IEP requirements. NOCTI offers paper/pencil testing for many of its credentials.

A reader may be assigned to read both online and paper/pencil credentialing assessments for participants who have been identified as needing this accommodation.

Text-to-speech is available through QuadNet™, NOCTI’s online testing system. Participants hear the question and answer choices read aloud and can view them in a larger font.

QuadNet™ has the ability to incorporate extended time requests for online administration. Sites may also allow extended time for paper/pencil administration.

Online test participants can enlarge a graphic or diagram for easier viewing. Large print versions of our paper/pencil credentialing assessment booklets are available when requested in advance.
