Document Number: 11114Diploma Options, Graduation Requirements, and Exit Exams for Youth with Disabilities: 2011 National Study - Trends and consequences of changes in diploma options for youth with disabilities were examined. Authors found that policies were being modified on a regular basis, graduation requirements tend to be increasing in rigor, and more youth with disabilities are taking high-stakes exit exams, but with accommodations. Recommendations include clarifying the implications of developing and granting alternative diploma options. (David R. Johnson, Martha L. Thurlow and Matthew J.
