dc.description.abstract The main purpose of this study was to assess the trends and practice of national exam accommodation for students with disabilities and suggest the necessary recommendations. The study used descriptive design as a research design to explain the current trends and practices of national exam accommodation To this end, 11 officials at National Educational Assessment and Examination Agency and 127 students with disabilities were selected using purposive and random sampling respectively. With regard to data gathering instrument, questionnaire, semi structured interview and FGD were used to collect data from the participants. Accordingly, the data obtained from different sources were analyzed using both quantitative and qualitative methods. The result obtained revealed that the existing practice of national exam accommodation for students with disabilities in our country is not up to the standard. The Agency does not give much attention for the issue of students with disabilities in national examination especially for students with hearing impairments and physical disabilities, The extended time accommodation provided for students with visual impairments and hearing impairments are not in legalized way there is no specific time to be added that is agreed and ratified by experts in Agency and most of the time it depends on the will of the invigilators and supervisors at the exam centers, There is no national policy implementation guideline that deals about accommodation of national examination for students with disabilities and the existing manual also does not address the issue of all students with disabilities indeed, it deals about the compensation subject for students with visual impairments, and there are many challenges that hinder the implementation of national exam accommodation for students with disabilities among these absence of clearly formulated policy implementation guideline regarding exam accommodation is the big challenge that hinders the implementation of national exam accommodation for students with disabilities Finally, possible recommendation had been forwarded based on the findings en_US
