Reply To: Read aloud accommodation

Dr. Eric

As we transition from the old paper-pencil tests to more computer adaptive assessments, we may need to look at our paradigm for accommodations.

It has been my experience professionally, that so many of the old “Go-to” accommodations are moot based on test design (untimed, can be paused for movement breaks, put on headphones, change background colors/fonts, etc.)

We have been finding that the negatives associated with new options are really not worth it when we have test driven them with kids on practice tests. You may want to consider pulling back the accommodations to see if they are even worth it. Bonus if there is a practice test option to try it out on first.
