ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES 17 Accessibility Ensuring that each student can interact appropriately with the content, presentation, and response mode of the test. Assessments should allow all test takers to demonstrate their knowledge of the content being tested without the format of the assessment, non-tested language, or the type of response needed to answer the questions being barriers. In order to meet this goal, various features and accommodations are made available on STAAR paper and online tests to students who use the same or similar supports during classroom instruction.

18 Accessibility Features Previously referred to as Allowable Test Administration Procedures and Materials Include things that may be provided to students based on their needs Available to any student who regularly benefits from the use of these procedures or materials during instruction 19 Accessibility Features A student cannot be required to use them during

testing. Coordinators are responsible for ensuring that test administrators understand the proper implementation of these procedures and use of these materials. A student may need to complete the test in a separate setting in order to eliminate distractions to other students and to ensure that the security and confidentiality of the test is maintained. 20 Accessibility Features General Reminders to Stay on Task Third grade Math Reading assistance

They must NOT be designed to define words or to illustrate or explain content terminology or concepts. 22 GENERAL INFORMATION

About 2017 POLICY 23 Policy Documents Contain the information needed to make accommodation decisions for all students taking STAAR, STAAR Spanish, and TELPAS Each document is organized the same way Description of Accommodation Assessments Student Eligibility Criteria Authority for Decision and Required Documentation Examples/Types Special Instructions/Considerations

24 This section provides a general description of the accommodation. Above this section is the name of the accommodation and an Accommodation Request Form icon in the right-hand corner. TEA approval is NOT required. TEA approval IS required. 25 This section lists the assessments the

accommodation may be used on by eligible students. In addition, this section may indicate whether the accommodation is available on paper, online, or both. Some accommodations are applicable to STAAR, STAAR Spanish, TELPAS, or any combination of these 3 programs. 26 This section lists the eligibility criteria that must be met in order for the student to use the Designated Support on a state assessment. Only the committees listed in the Authority for

Decision section can consider the eligibility for a student. Depending on the accommodation, the eligibility may be very general or very specific. All accommodations require that the student use the accommodation routinely, independently (if applicable), and effectively. 27 Routinely The student should routinely receive the accommodation during classroom instruction and testing. The student has used the accommodation often enough that he or she is comfortable

using it on the day of the state assessment. This does not necessarily mean that the accommodation must be used every day during instruction. 28 Independently The student should be able to use the accommodation independently, when applicable, during the state assessment. For accommodations where independence is applicable, there should be no need for teacher assistance when using the accommodation. 29

Effectively Educators should collect and analyze data pertaining to the use and effectiveness of accommodations (e.g., assignment/test scores with and without the accommodation, observational reports). This data will show whether the student still needs the accommodation or whether it is now unnecessary. 30 This section describes who can make accommodation decisions for students, where to document these decisions, and what to record on the answer document. Each of these bullets are NOT found on every Designated Support, meaning that not all students can be considered for

all accommodations. For a student not receiving special education or Section 504 services, the decision is made by the appropriate team of people at the campus level (e.g., RTI team, student assistance team) based on the eligibility criteria and is documented according to district policies. For a student who is an ELL, the decision is made by the LPAC based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students permanent record file. 31 In the case of an ELL with a disability, the decision is made by the applicable group (e.g., RTI team, Section 504 committee, ARD committee) in conjunction with the students LPAC. The decision is to be documented by the LPAC in the students permanent record file and by the other applicable group.

For a student receiving services under Section 504, the decision is made by the Section 504 committee based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students IAP. For a student receiving special education services, the decision is made by the ARD committee based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students IEP. 32 This section describes the specific examples/types of the accommodation that may be used on the state assessment. Pay careful attention to this list because it is sometimes exhaustive. 33

This section outlines special instructions and considerations about the accommodation that educators must be aware of when making the decisions to use the accommodation and administering the assessment with the accommodation. 34 Accommodations in Emergency or Unexpected Situations Follow these steps when unexpected or emergency situations (e.g., broken arm, lost eyeglasses) occur just prior to or on the day of the state assessment.

Step 1: No need to contact Dawn Ayers-Rodriguez Make available Accessibility Features which are allowed for any student. Step 2: No need to contact Dawn Ayers-Rodriguez Make available locally-approved Designated Supports. Consideration should be given to accommodations that the student can independently use (e.g., for the student who does not have his/her prescribed eyeglasses, consider use of a projection device or a large-print test booklet prior to considering an oral administration by a test administrator). Step 3: Contact Dawn Ayers-Rodriguez If the students needs cannot be met with Step 1 or 2, contact Dawn AyersRodriguez. 35 Accommodations in Emergency or Unexpected Situations There is no expectation that the student would have routinely received the Accessibility Feature or Designated Support

during previous classroom instruction and testing. It is recommended that the student (and the test administrator, if applicable) be given the opportunity to practice using the feature or support prior to testing, if time permits. After testing, document the availability of the Designated Support on the answer document even if the student did not use it. Consider the situation when interpreting test results. 36 DESIGNATED SUPPORTS LOCALLY APPROVED 37

Locally-Approved Designated Supports Previously referred to as Type 1 accommodations or linguistic accommodations, These include supports that may be made available to students who meet eligibility criteria. The decision to provide a Designated Support to a student is made by the appropriate team of people at the campus level (e.g., ARD committee, ARD committee in conjunction with LPAC, Section 504 placement committee, LPAC, RTI team, student assistance team) listed on the specific policy document. 38 Designated Supports with ONE Student Eligibility Criterion

often enough that he or she is comfortable using it on the day of the state assessment. This does not necessarily mean that the designated support must be used every day during instruction. The student should be able to use the designated support independently, when applicable, during the state assessment.

For designated supports where independence is applicable, there should be no need for teacher assistance when using the designated support. The designated support has proven to be effective in meeting the students specific needs. Educators MUST collect and analyze data pertaining to the use and effectiveness of ALL designated supports (e.g., assignment/test scores with and

without the accommodation, observational reports). Data will show whether the student still needs the designated support or whether it is still applicable. Special Education An ARD meeting determines which state assessment a student will take The ARD meeting also determines what accommodations the student will be allowed to use during state assessments Accommodations during state assessments;

are NOT all suitable for instruction are NOT all suitable for state assessments are all required to be ROUTINELY, INDEPENDENTLY, and EFFECTIVELY used in the classroom before being allowed for state assessments 41 Special Education continued A student taking STAAR with Designated Support or taking STAAR Alternate 2 MUST meet specific criteria. It MUST be documented in students ARD paper work by the committee of knowledgeable people. Participation requirements are only needed for students who will be taking STAAR

Alternate 2. 42 Special Education continued Although the ARD meeting determines which, if any, designated support are to be used on state assessments, the designated support agreed upon, MUST be allowable by TEA. There are multiple state assessments for students who are receiving special education services: STAAR - EOC STAAR Alternate 2 43

64 Oral/Signed Administration Evidence of reading difficulties This is a problem with reading that can be caused by various reasons, including (but not limited to) a learning disability in reading ADD/ADHD behavioral or emotional problem processing or memory issue

The appropriate team of people at the campus level (i.e., RTI team, Section 504 committee, ARD committee) should review the students current documentation and instructional supports and determine if this evidence indicates a reading difficulty. If the student is currently receiving this accommodation in classroom instruction, there should be documented evidence of why this is necessary. 65 Oral/Signed Administration: Administration Authority for Decision and Required Documentation For a student not receiving special education or Section 504

services, the decision is made by the appropriate team of people at the campus level (e.g., RTI team, student assistance team) based on the eligibility criteria and is documented according to district policies. For a student who is an ELL, the decision is made by the LPAC based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students permanent record file. In the case of an ELL with a disability, the decision is made by the applicable group (e.g., RTI team, Section 504 committee, ARD committee) in conjunction with the students LPAC.

For a student receiving Section 504 services, the decision is made by the Section 504 committee based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students IAP. For a student receiving special education services, the decision is made by the ARD committee based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students IEP. 67 Oral/Signed Administration Oral Administration of STAAR and STAAR Spanish Paper Tests and STAAR Braille Tests Test administrators must be trained in the procedures specific to an oral administration. Guidelines for providing an oral administration can be found in

the Oral/Signed Administration Guidelines document that will be posted on the Accommodation Resources webpage. Oral administration can include different levels of reading support for each eligible student. The test administrator may read parts of the test questions and answer choices at student request read all test questions and answer choices throughout the test (not appropriate for standardized oral administration [SOA]) It is the responsibility of the appropriate team of people at the campus level to determine eligibility and document the level of reading support the student needs in the appropriate student paperwork. A student can request a change to the level of reading support provided during testing if this option is documented. 68 Oral/Signed Administration Text-to-Speech (TTS) on STAAR Online Tests

TTS allows a student to independently select and change his or her level of reading support during the test administration. Do NOT document levels of reading support for TTS. A student MUST take an online test using TTS in the following instances: Students eligible for an Oral Administration of a writing test should take STAAR online since text-to-speech will read aloud the revising passages, test questions, and answer choices. Students eligible for an Oral Administration and Content Supports and/or Language and Vocabulary Supports should take STAAR online since

these supports are only offered online. TTS will also read aloud the text in the embedded supports (i.e., pop-ups and rollovers). It is recommended that students complete the STAAR online tutorial as well as practice using the STAAR L or STAAR A release tests prior to test administration. These resources allow students to become familiar with the functionality of online tests. 69 Supplemental Aides: Student Eligibility Criteria A student may use this accommodation on STAAR and STAAR Spanish if instructional and assessment decisions are made by an LPAC, Section 504 committee, or ARD committee, and

he or she routinely, independently, and effectively uses this accommodation during classroom instruction and classroom testing. 70 Supplemental Aides: Authority for Decision and Required Documentation In the case of an ELL with a disability, the decision is made by the applicable group (e.g., Section 504 committee, ARD committee) in conjunction with the students LPAC.

A student may use this accommodation if instructional and assessment decisions are made by LPAC, Section 504 committee, or ARD committee, and he or she routinely, independently, and effectively uses this accommodation during classroom instruction and classroom testing. 79 Content Supports Language and Vocabulary Supports: Authority for Decision and Required Documentation In the case of an ELL, the decision is made by the students LPAC based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students permanent record file.

In the case of an ELL with a disability, the decision is made by the applicable group (e.g., Section 504 committee, ARD committee) in conjunction with the students LPAC. The decision is to be documented by the LPAC in the students permanent record file and by the other applicable group. For a student receiving Section 504 services, the decision is made by the Section 504 committee based on the eligibility criteria and is documented in the students IAP. 80 Content Supports Language and Vocabulary Supports: Authority for Decision and Required Documentation For a student receiving special education services, the decision is made by the ARD committee based on the

eligibility criteria and is documented in the students IEP. If the ARD or Section 504 committee selected one or more STAAR A assessments for Spring 2017, the committee will need to update the students IEP or Section 504 plan so that it reflects each assessment the student will take and describes the accommodations that the student requires during testing. A district must determine on a case-by-case basis whether a students IEP should be revised in an ARD committee meeting or through an agreement to amend the students IEP. 81 Content Supports Accommodation Guidelines Pop-ups:

presented in an online format, replicating these features in a paper version is not always possible. Technology-based accommodations enable most students to test online; however, a special request can be made to TEA for approval to administer a paper test IF the use of an accommodation is not feasible or appropriate for an online administration, or the administration of an online test is inappropriate due to a students particular disability 97 Content Supports Language and Vocabulary Supports: Special Situations (continued)

The paper administration request document will be updated soon and will be posted on the TEAs District and Campus Coordinator Manual 2017 Resources webpage. We will begin accepting requests in early 2017 An Accommodation Request Form should NOT be used for these requests. The Designated Response requiring TEA approval will be indicated on the paper request form. 98 Content Supports Language and Vocabulary Supports:

Special Situations For students taking a braille test who are eligible for Language and Vocabulary Supports or Content Supports, contact Dawn Ayers-Rodriguez. It is possible to order a paper version of the assessment for this particular situation; however, special instructions may apply. 99 Content Supports Language and Vocabulary Supports: Special Situations For students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing who are eligible for

Oral/Signed Administration, AND Language and Vocabulary Supports AND/OR Content Supports Students will take the STAAR online but are not able to access the text-to-speech function. A signed administration is allowed for those parts of the test that can be read aloud. Test administrators should be trained using the Oral/Signed Administration Guidelines and also read the specific guidelines for signing test content included in the General Instructions for Administering State Assessments to Students Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing document. Both of these documents will be updated for 2017 and posted to TEAs website. 100

Content Supports Language and Vocabulary Supports: Special Situations Previous policy regarding transcribing students responses to the writing prompt for STAAR A grade 4 writing has not changed for students taking 2017 STAAR online. For students taking 4th grade STAAR writing online, it is not necessary for them to meet the eligibility criteria for Basic Transcribing. This specific group of students may have their responses to the writing prompt transcribed into the online test in accordance with guidelines listed in Basic Transcribing.

Note: This is not a requirement of the administration and decisions regarding this provision must be based on individual student need. TEA will continue to review this policy for subsequent administration years. Students in all other grades and subjects must meet the eligibility requirements for Basic Transcribing in order to have their written responses transcribed. 101 Math Manipulatives: Student Eligibility Criteria A student may use this accommodation on STAAR or STAAR Spanish math assessments if he or she

receives special education or Section 504 services, routinely, independently, and effectively uses this accommodation during classroom instruction and classroom testing. 102 Math Manipulatives: Authority for Decision and Required Documentation In the case of an ELL with a disability, the decision is made by the applicable group (e.g., Section 504 committee, ARD committee) in conjunction with the students LPAC. The decision is to be documented by the LPAC in the students permanent record file and by the other applicable group. For a student receiving Section 504 services, the decision is made by the Section 504 committee based on the eligibility

3 andgrade. 4 Grades 5 through 8 applicable The student has a physical disability The student has an impairment in vision The student has a physical disability The student has an impairment in vision The student has a disability that affects mathematics calculations

108 Calculation Aides Eligibility for grades 3-4 versus grades 58 Students in grades 3 and 4 may use a calculator if they meet eligibility criteria; however, having a disability that affects mathematics calculation is not one of those criterion. The state curriculum (TEKS) at grades 3 and 4 include student expectations that focus on students learning the algorithms for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. The state assessments at these grades include test questions that measure calculation skills. It is important that students in grades 3 and 4 are

given the time to learn these skills. 109 Calculation Aides Disability in math calculation This is a problem adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing using paper and pencil that can be caused by various reasons, including (but not limited to) a learning disability in mathematics calculation ADD/ADHD behavioral or emotional problem

processing or memory issue The ARD or Section 504 committee should review the students current documentation and instructional supports and determine if this evidence indicates that the students disability causes him or her to have a problem calculating with pencil and paper. If the student is currently receiving this accommodation in classroom instruction, there should be documented evidence of why this is necessary. 110 Calculation Aides: Authority for Decision and Required Documentation

Same as Last Year Extra Day Photocopy Complex Transcribing Other Math Scribe 131 Accommodation Request Process Online form opens for spring 2017 submissions in early 2017

Accommodation Request Forms must be received by TEA according to the posted deadlines. Late requests will NOT be processed unless circumstances involving the student change after the deadline (e.g., newly enrolled student, medical emergency, updated ARD committee decisions). 132 Accommodation Request Process The request must be approved by TEA before a student can use the Designated Support on the state assessment. This type of support must be documented in the student's paperwork as pending

TEA approval. As stated in the TEA decision email, the expiration date for all approved Type 2 accommodations is December 31st of the year the request was approved. In the event that a request is denied, the campus should be prepared to meet the students needs with Accessibility Features or other locally-approved Designated Supports. 133 Accommodation Request Process When completing the online Accommodation Request Form, be prepared to provide specific, detailed information about the reason the student needs the accommodation

students first and last name Social Security number pages from an IEP medical documents 135 Accommodation Request Process The district testing coordinator is the primary contact person for schools when questions arise. Any educator may fill out the necessary information (depending on district policy); however, the district testing coordinator must sign the Accommodation Request Form in order for the request to be reviewed by TEA. District personnel completing the online Accommodation Request Form should review the training documentation, especially if he or

she is doing this for the first time. The district/campus testing coordinator MUST ensure that the test administrator receives special training to administer an assessment with an approved accommodation if special guidelines accompany the approved request. 136 Have the designated supports been effective for the student on past assessments? Does the test format give the student a fair opportunity to be successful? Is the student mature enough or computer literate enough to maneuver the online testing tools (not a distraction)? Its whats best for the students, its not whats best for the building.

137 Refer to the list of state-approved testing designated support Understand purpose of the designated support and make sure it is relevant to the students need and the demands of the test Any designated support used during state assessments has to be documented in the students accommodation plan in eSped Extensive designated support needs extensive documentation in order to be justified (must be in red folder and eStar / eSped 138 All relevant teachers should be informed of designated support

Designated Supports must be concise and based on the students physical or mental impairment Designated supports are allowed during state assessments even if the designated support was not suitable for classroom instruction Based on TEAs allowable designated supports, the 504 Committee will determine which designated support the student will use during the students state assessments 139 Additional Information 140
