The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers will allow the language-arts portions of the test to be read aloud or interpreted in American Sign Language for students with disabilities and give parts of the test in the native languages of students who are English-language learners. The 21-state partnership approved the accommodations, with Colorado representatives casting the only dissenting vote because they said the test would fail to assess students' ability to read.
