14 Upcoming Analyses: Difficulty Change on Individual Items CAAVES Item Mod Data Students without Disabilities, Ineligible Students with Disabilities, Eligible

15 Conclusions Assessments can be made more accessible for eligible students (with disabilities who have persistent academic difficulties). Modifications can change the difficulty of tests and items without invalidating the resulting scores. Much more work needs to be done! CAAVES Item Mod Data
