Staar accommodations
STAAR Accommodations Meeting

  • The following slides have been extracted out of the PowerPoint presentation from TETN Event #10416 presented Thursday, October 13, 2011, titled “Accommodations for Students with Disabilities…,” has been posted under Training and Presentations at

Critical information about accommodations for students with disabilities
Critical Information about Accommodations Meetingfor Students with Disabilities

  • For the purposes of statewide testing, students needing accommodations due to a disability include

    • A student with an identified disability who receives special education services and meets established eligibility criteria for certain accommodations

    • A student with an identified disability who receives Section 504 services and meets established eligibility criteria for certain accommodations

    • A student with a disabling condition who does not receive special education or Section 504 services but meets established eligibility criteria for certain accommodations


Critical information about accommodations for students with disabilities1
Critical Information about Accommodations Meetingfor Students with Disabilities

  • Who makes decisions about accommodation use during statewide assessments for students with disabilities and where should the decisions be documented?

    • Special education services: the ARD committee; IEP

    • Section 504 services: the 504 placement committee; IAP


Critical information about accommodations for students with disabilities2
Critical Information about Accommodations Meetingfor Students with Disabilities

  • No special education or Section 504 services: the appropriate team of people at the campus level; documentation determined at local level

    • Response to Intervention (RTI) team and student assistance team are just examples

    • This applies to a small group of students


Optional test administration procedures and materials
Optional Test Administration MeetingProcedures and Materials

  • Referred to as Related Testing Procedures in TETN #10414

  • Includes some procedures and materials that have been called testing accommodations in previous years

  • Related to best practices for instruction

  • Available to any student who needs them

  • Use of these procedures or materials is not recorded on the student’s answer document

  • Authority for decision is the same as for accommodations; there must be a body of people in place to make decisions

  • The campus testing coordinator will need to know in order to plan for test days

  • Descriptions and guidelines for use included in document on Accommodations for SWD webpage and in test administrator manuals


Optional test administration procedures and materials1
Optional Test Administration MeetingProcedures and Materials

  • A student may use the following procedures and materials during the statewide assessments:

    • Procedures or materials to minimize distractions (e.g., stress ball, noise-reducing headphones)

    • Reading test aloud to self (e.g., reading into a voice-feedback device or voice recorder)

    • Signing or translating test administration directions

    • Reading assistance on grade 3 mathematics

  • If distracting to other students, an individual administration may be required.

    • Individual or small-group testing

    • Colored overlays

    • Magnifying devices

    • Place markers

    • Highlighters or colored pencils

    • Preferential seating

    • Scratch paper /

      other workspace

The Accommodation Triangle Meeting

The accommodation triangle1
The Accommodation Triangle Meeting

  • Type 1 accommodations are for a larger number of students. As the triangle narrows, the policies become more restrictive, addressing fewer students who have these specific needs. Type 3 accommodations are intended for a small number of students.

  • Type 1 Accommodation: for students with a specific need who routinely, independently, and effectively use it during classroom instruction and testing; no ARF

  • Type 2 Accommodation: Type 1 requirements plus additional specific eligibility criteria; no ARF

  • Type 3 Accommodation: appropriate team of people at campus level determines eligibility for listed accommodations or “other” accommodations not listed in the triangle AND submits an ARF to TEA
