Slide10

How

do I ensure that students receive their assigned designated supports and accommodations within the test delivery system (embedded) as well as those outside the test delivery system (non-embedded)?

Accessibility and Accommodations

Slide11

The examples shown in this module are for the

test delivery system. It is important to note that the way to access these tools and how these tools present on your screen may vary slightly depending on the test delivery system used in your state.

Universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations

may be different

from those that your state has allowed in the past.

Accessibility and Accommodations

Slide13

For the secure assessments, a state can only provide students with the universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations that are included in the

Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines.

What

are Designated Supports?

DefinedDesignated supports for the ELA and mathematics online assessments are resources that are available for use by any student for whom the need has been indicated by an educator or team of educators with parent/guardian and student. Assigning a designated support does not require documentation of need in an IEP or 504 plan. It is recommended that a consistent process be used to determine these supports for individual students.Designated supports need to be identified and assigned in the Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) prior to assessment administration.Students should be familiar with using the designated supports assigned to them.

Decisions

Slide28

What

are Designated Supports?

DecisionsInformed adults make decisions about these designated supports. Ideally, the decisions are made by educators familiar with the student’s needs, as well as those supports that the student has been using during instruction and for other assessments. Student and parent/guardian participation in the decision, particularly for older students, is also recommended.

?

Slide30

What

are Accommodations?

AccommodationsAccommodations are changes in procedures or materials that increase equitable access during the online assessments. Assessment accommodations generate valid assessment results for students who need them; they allow these students to show what they know and can do.Smarter Balanced states have identified accommodations for students for whom there is a documented need for the accommodation(s) on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 accommodation plan or special circumstance, such as the example of the broken arm.

Slide31

What

are Accommodations?

Accommodations ContinuedIEP teams, educators, and parents/guardians make decisions about accommodations. These teams (or educators for 504 plans) provide evidence of the need for accommodations and ensure that they are noted on the IEP or 504 plan. School staff are responsible for ensuring that information from the IEP is entered into TIDE so that all embedded accommodations can be activated prior to testing.
