The only student in my class to ace today's quiz was a student with a documented learning disability.

I do not know what the disability is. I only know that he gave me a letter from the disability office telling me to provide accommodations like note taking and a reduced distraction testing environment.

This happens about three or four times a semester, and the list ofo accommodations is usually about the same. I would guess that most such students have been diagnosed with ADHD.

I am not exactly sure what this says about me, my class, my teaching style, the education system, and/or the medical system.
