Testing Accommodations

Occasionally, a candidate may request a testing accommodation due to a documented disability or temporary impairment. Such accommodations are appropriate only when individuals have disabilities or temporary impairments that prevent them from fluidly responding to test questions, and only when supported by documentation of the disability or temporary impairment.

Wonderlic’s general practice is to evaluate requests for testing accommodations on a case-by-case basis. This is due to the specific nature of disabilities and impairments and their impacts on individuals. If a candidate requests an accommodation, we recommend you contact Wonderlic Compliance for guidance before testing the candidate. The best way to contact the Wonderlic Compliance Team is via email at

Before contacting the Compliance Team, please consider the following questions: 

  • What is the individual’s disability?

  • To what extent does the disability currently affect their test-taking ability?

  • Are there specific accommodation(s) being requested? If so, what are they?

  • What is the nature of the supporting documentation (e.g., IEP), and does it indicate that the accommodation(s) being requested are appropriate testing accommodations? (Note: You may need to submit relevant sections of this documentation to Wonderlic to help us identify a reasonable accommodation.)
