PARCC Assessments: UDL and Accessibility Features

PARCC Assessments: UDL and Accessibility Features | Middle School Transition | Scoop.it

The PARRC, a standardized test aligned to the Common Core, includes embedded scaffolds and accessibility features “allowable for all students” (p.20) in addition to accommodations for students with disabilities.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, May 10, 2013 12:42 PM

Thank you Katie for addressing the UDL aspects of PARCC assessment in your blog. As far as special education students are addressed, teachers should not make any assumptions. A closer reading of the actual accommodations makes clear that some testing accommodations must be addressed in a student's IEP as well as part of day-to-day instruction. Teachers will need to verify what the IEP clearly states and what the assessment offers.
