Describe changes in format, response, setting, timing, or scheduling that do not alter in any significant way what the test measures or the comparability of scores.

Accommodations are designed to ensure that an assessment measures the intended construct, not the child’s disability.

Accommodations affect three areas of testing: 1) the administration of tests, 2) how students are allowed to respond to the items, and 3) the presentation of the tests (how the items are presented to the students on the test instrument).

Accommodations may include Braille forms of a test for blind students or tests in native languages for students whose primary language is other than English.
