Testing with Accommodations
Testing accommodations are intended to minimize to the extent possible the unintended impact of a student's disability on the measure of each content area performance on the state and district assessments. These accommodations were put in place by the IEP/504 team because it was determined that this additional support would produce the greatest amount of success for your child. It is very important that students take full advantage of all test accommodations in order to maximize success on state-, district- and classroom-based assessments.
