Standards and Assessments
Title I Directors' Conference
Text (slide 21):
Accommodations for Special Education Students
- Students with disabilities must be provided with appropriate accommodations, when necessary, to enable participation in State assessments.
- Decisions regarding accommodations should be made on the basis of individual student needs, not on the basis of labels (such as category of disability).
- The accommodations that students receive on State assessments should be similar to those routinely provided to students during classroom instruction.
