Special Test Accommodations Questions and Answers Q: If there is a student who, based on physical disability, is unable to type (but is able to write) the writing prompt, will it be allowed for an adult to "transcribe" by typing his written response into the computer?

Additionally, the students written response must be retained on file and secure in your office until scores are received and verified.
