Description

Some students require special adaptive furniture, noise buffers, or special lighting.Usually, there are specific locations where students can receive such accommodations. Although it is preferable to make these accommodations available in the general test setting, it is not always possible.

Procedure

  1. If a separate room is necessary, make sure the room is available and scheduled forthe assessment session.
  2. Prior to the scheduled test time, make sure all of the accommodations are in proper working order.
  3. If the student is unfamiliar with the room,provide him or her with an opportunity prior to the test date to become comfortable there.
  4. Plan how the student will come to the room.
  5. If the student is expected to come tothe room independently, determine a routine for transitioning prior to the testing day.

Cautions

If the student is used to receiving these accommodations in the classroom, makesure the student understands why he or she must take the test in a separate location.
