Washington state offers a variety of testing accommodations that remove barriers caused by a student’s disability, or lack of English language proficiency, so test scores can accurately reflect a student’s true knowledge and skills.
Accommodations may not be provided solely as a way to help ensure proficiency on the standards. The ultimate goal of any accommodation is meaningful measurement of what the student has learned.
- For Accommodations not addressed in the Accommodation Guidelines, a District Assessment Coordinator can submit an Exceptional Accommodation form for approval. These can be obtained by e-mailing email@example.com
For more information about the state’s Alternate Assessment program, please contact the Alternate Assessment office: firstname.lastname@example.org or (360) 725-6089.
