[IPAC-List] Test Anxiety and the ADA

I don't believe that taking tests per se would be considered a major life activity; therefore, I question whether this must be accommodated (even if verified by a health professional).  What type of accommodation is being requested? If it would be easy to implement (e.g., quiet room, perhaps) you might consider providing it regardless.

Does anyone have any resources describing the current state of Test Anxiety as an ADA-covered disability? Any relevant documents/interpretive guidelines or case law that might help?

It's been a while since I received a request for accommodation for test anxiety...

Thanks in advance.
