Latest Research on Assessment and Accommodations for Students with Disabilities Now Available

December 13, 2007

The National Dissemination Center for Students with Disabilities (NICHCY) has provided NASET its' latest Evidence for Education brief, Assessment and Accommodations.

Assessment and Accommodations examines what the research has to say about providing students with disabilities with accommodations that support learning as well as their ability to show what they know and can do. NICHCY has included multiple examples of accommodations, guidelines to help IEP teams decide what accommodations a student needs, connections to Federal guidance and requirements on this important topic, and links that will help you identify what accommodation policies your state has adopted to guide participation of children with disabilities in large-scale assessments.

Assessment and Accommodations is available online at:
