Evaluating Testing Accommodations

TEC.Sept.Oct.15It seems another state assessment is always around the corner, so it’s never too early to start thinking about ways to ensure all students can access these tests. This week’s FREE tool is a template to help you determine test accommodations for students with disabilities by asking questions about the student’s characteristics, the barriers to the test, the accommodations that align with those barriers, and the effectiveness of the accommodations once implemented. The template comes from the latest issue of TEACHING Exceptional Children. The article, “The 2% Transition: Supporting Access to State Assessments for Students with Disabilities,” outlines a four-step process for assigning accommodations that will improve access to state assessments for students with persistent academic difficulties.
