Thinking Ahead to Testing—What If We Get Our Accommodations Wrong?

With all of the changes to assessments and expectations over the past couple of years, it is never too early to start thinking ahead to make sure your students are prepared. Think about the potential impact to your students if they are using the wrong accommodations. What happens if their accommodations aren’t determined early enough?

From PARCC to Smarter Balanced to STAAR and more, each state has their own rules and regulations regarding allowable accommodations.
