Improving Accommodations Decisions for Low-Performing Students

Laurene Christensen, Ph.D.

National Center on Educational Outcomes


What are accommodations
What are accommodations?

Accommodations are changes in materials or procedures that allow students to participate in instruction and assessment in a way that measures their abilities rather than disabilities (for students with disabilities) or proficiency in English (for English language learners). Without accommodations, the student may not have meaningful access to grade level instruction, and assessments may not accurately reflect the student’s skills and abilities.
