Resources on Assessment Accommodation by the Council for Exceptional Children

Making Assessment Accommodations: A Toolkit for Educators
Use as a training resource or for information sessions to learn about the accommodations useful to assist students through state and district wide assessments. The video features students in test settings, as well as teachers, parents, and administrators explaining what accommodations are available.

Standards Reference Master This CD-ROM features Standards and Benchmarks for 33 States and McREL's Content Knowledge. More than just a text browser, this powerful infoBASE allows you to personalize standards and benchmark content through program features such as creating shadow files, highlighting, full-text editing, and more.

Testing Students with Disabilities: Practical Strategies for Complying With District and State Requirements
Martha L. Thurlow, Judy L. Elliott, and James E. Ysseldyke
This guide explains how to decide which tests students with disabilities should take; what assessment accommodations are, their purpose, and who is eligible for them; how to ensure that any assessments used locally are comparable to state standards; and how to blend the assessment process with the student's IEP.

Teaching Test-taking Skills: Helping Students Show What They Know
Thomas E. Scruggs and Margo A. Mastropieri
Classroom teachers, resource teachers, and parents can help students "show what they know" by training them in test-taking skills. Not to be confused with teaching to the test, test-taking skills training involves teaching the student to deal with test format and his or her own approach to taking tests. This book gives strategies for taking both standardized and classroom tests, and presents a curriculum and sample lesson plans.
