Accommodation Sessions

Separate sessions are held for students with disabilities or English language learners if their Individualized Education Plans require this accommodation. These students may be assessed in small groups or in a one-on-one environment.

In some cases, the school provides a teacher or staff person who is familiar with the students to work with students and field staff in accommodation sessions. Otherwise, field staff work directly with students. As with general sessions, field staff assist students only when they are answering background questions or when making sure they understand how to record answers.
