PreACT Secure Accommodations and Supports

PreACT Secure Accessibility

Aspire Logo
State and federal laws require that state assessments must allow for the inclusion of all students, including students with disabilities and English language learners. Accommodations and supports are practices and procedures that provide equitable access to grade-level content. They are intended to reduce or eliminate the effects of a student’s disability or level of language acquisition; they do not reduce learning expectations. The accommodations or supports provided to a student must be consistent for classroom instruction, classroom assessments, and district and state assessments. It is important to note that while some accommodations or supports may be appropriate for instructional use, they may not be appropriate for use on a standardized assessment.

Accommodations and Supports

Students who require testing in a specialized format such as braille with tactile graphics, human reader or large print materials, may be tested with a paper and pencil test.
