Accommodations are intended to reduce or even eliminate the effects of a student’s disability; they do not reduce learning expectations. The accommodations provided to a student must be the same for classroom instruction, classroom assessments, and district and state assessments.
There are two components: Attainment Tasks (AT) and Transition Attainment Record (TAR)
Attainment Tasks (AT)
Attainment tasks are scripted tests with picture supports that measure student knowledge in the areas of reading, writing, math, science and social studies.
Transition Attainment Record (TAR)
The Transition Attainment Record is a checklist which evaluates the student’s readiness in reading, mathematics and science. This assessment is for 8th, 10th and 11th grade students.
Alternatives to Suspension
Assistive technology is any item that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of a child with a disability. For some students with disabilities, assistive technology may be the only way that access to the general curriculum can be ensured!
