Accommodations for Special Education Students and Common-Core Testing

PARCC logo

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for Colleges and Careers (PARCC) has published a final draft and other materials outlining its policies on accommodations for Common Core State Standards assessments. The guidelines will permit students with disabilities to have read-aloud accommodations during the English/language arts section of the test and have access to American Sign Language interpreters as needed.

A memo to the Members of the PARCC Governing Board outlines the contents of the policy.

A PowerPoint presentation on the manual, and a draft of the final policy are also available.
