Have ever received any extra support on a test, such as extra time? If so, you may have had legally approved test accommodations through a document called an IEP or a 504.
In accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Section 504, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997, and the American Act of 1990, LARA provides accommodations for physical, emotional, and learning needs. Please inform the assessment staff of your testing needs, supplying a copy of an IEP, 504 Plan, or any applicable diagnosis if available. If one is not available, please discuss your needs with the assessment staff and they will provide you with necessary information to document your needs. Advising and teaching staff will, also, ask you about any special accommodations that you might need in the classroom. Special accommodations allowed are extended time, or untimed testing, use of a calculator on non-calculator math, tests read out loud, or delivered with Text-to-Speech audio, and preferential or small group seating, and separate room testing. These must be documented and an application signed and submitted for approval.
Physical support is also allowable and requires no documentation, other than notice to Assessment staff. Allowable Resources for physical support may include, but is not limited to: magnification tools, colored overlays or line guides, place markers or straight edge, special lighting, noise reduction, seat cushion.
