    3. Critical Information about Accommodations for 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 • A student with an identified disability who receives Section 504 services • A student with a disabling condition who does not receive special education or Section 504 services

    4. Critical Information about Accommodations for 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

    5. Critical Information about Accommodations for 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

    6. Optional Test Administration Procedures and Materials • 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 • 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 • Descriptions and guidelines: • Optional Test Administration Procedures and Materials

    7. Optional Test AdministrationProcedures and Materials • A student may use the following procedures and materials during the statewide assessments: • Procedures or materials to minimize distractions • Reading test aloud to self • 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

    8. The Accommodation Triangle • 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

    9. Supplemental Aids • STAAR, STAAR Spanish, STAAR Modified, STAAR L • Eligibility Criteria • Special education only • Routinely, independently, & effectively… • Has a disability that affects memory retrieval, focus, or organization such that he or she cannot learn and retain information as effectively as non-disabled peers despite multiple opportunities to learn, varied instructional strategies, and high-quality instruction.

    10. Want additional manipulatives and supplemental aids? • For the 2011-2012 school year, these lists represent what eligible students can use. • TEA will not accept ARFs for additional manipulatives or supplemental aids. • TEA encourages feedback from educators about additional manipulatives and supplemental aids that can be added to the lists for future years. This will be requested after spring testing.

    11. Former Dyslexia Accommodations • There are several accommodations that could be useful for a student with dyslexia. • Oral administration will now be expanded to include allowing the Test Administrator to read aloud the questions and answer choices from the reading tests to students who meet the eligibility criteria.

    12. Former Dyslexia Accommodations • Extra time to complete the test (until the end of the published school day) may be allowed if the student meets the eligibility criteria. • Having an extra day to complete the test is reserved for students with serious medical conditions or other unique and severe situations.
