Introduction

A reasonable adjustment is defined as any action that helps reduce the effect of a disability or difficulty that places the candidate at a substantial disadvantage in the assessment situation.  Actions include allowing extra time to complete an assessment activity, providing large text materials, a language interpreter or reader, or re-organising the room to adapt to any disabilities.  The use of reasonable adjustment is not taken into account during the assessment of a candidate´s actual work.
