Students with IEPs may require assessment accommodations to participate in state-required assessments, district-wide assessments and classroom assessments, if they are used consistently as a part of the student’s routine instruction.

Decisions for assessment accommodations are determined by the ARC team and documented in the IEP. The Accommodation Determination form may be used to assist the ARC in making accommodation determinations. Assessment accommodations should fade over time as students gain independence with skills as a result of targeted instruction. 

 

The Inclusion of Special Populations in the State-Required Assessment And Accountability Programs (703 KAR 5:070 December 2016) document provides direction for the inclusion of special populations in state-required Assessment and Accountability Programs. The various types of accommodations that that may be utilized by students with disabilities are described in detail in the document.  The Kentucky Department of Education developed a calculator policy which should also be referenced when considering the use of calculators as an accommodation.  

Inclusion of Special Populations Regulation Training

Anyone that provide accommodations during state testing must have Inclusions of Special Populations training.

To assist districts with online training, the KDE has developed eight (8) modules for the Inclusion of Special Populations trainings.
