13 12 Discussion Questions Choose two accessibility features available for all students. Discuss how these features may support students. Discuss how these features could be used during instruction and what they look like in routine instruction. Discuss if these features could distract some students.

14 13 Features for All Students: Identified in advance FAQ answered in Section 2: 1.Do I need to fill out a Personal Needs Profile (PNP) for a student who needs an accessibility feature(s) identified in advance? 2.Where can I find more information about the accessibility features available for all students? 3.What test administration considerations are available for all students? Features for All Students Identified in Advance pages 22-26: Answer making Color contrast (Background/Font Color) Text to speech for the mathematics assessment Human reader or human signer for the mathematics assessment

22 21 For Students with Disabilities Accommodations are divided into three categories in the manual: Presentation accommodations – pages Response accommodations – pages Timing and scheduling accommodations – page 43 Accommodations for Students For English Learners Accommodations can be found on pages 44 – 48 of the manual. Appendices A – K provide more detailed information

23 22 Accommodations for Students FAQ answered in Section 3: 1.Who determines what accommodations should be chosen for the Personal Needs Profile (PNP)? 2.Do accommodations impact the scoring of the assessment and how is that reported to parents? 3.How are accommodations chosen for English learners who also have disabilities?
