Testing Accommodations for Students with Disabilities -- The new guidance document, Testing Accommodations for Students with Disabilities: Policy and Tools to Guide Decision-Making and Implementation, developed by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to assist school personnel in making appropriate decisions for considering, documenting, and implementing testing accommodations for students with disabilities. This guidance document, found on the Office of Special Education website, supersedes the guidance in NYSED's May 2006 Test Access and Accommodations for Students with Disabilities. Updates in the guidance document cover areas including, but not limited to: computer-based testing, assistive technology accommodations, tests read, use of spell-check devices/software, procedures on the use of a scribe and multiple day test administration. This guidance document should be used in conjunction with the School Administrator's Manuals for all assessments and examinations included in the New York State testing program.
