Accommodations FAQs

Why doesn't CECAS have a validation to prevent a user from choosing a testing accommodation that is not allowable for a particular test, such as "Read Aloud" for the Reading test?

We cannot establish validations in CECAS preventing users from choosing certain accommodations with specific tests because the federal law mandates that the IEP team is the final authority on deciding about testing accommodations. The team must be provided with information about accommodations, including which ones will invalidate the test scores, but ultimately the IEP team has the authority to make the decision.
