Students with learning disabilities can apply for accommodations when taking the MCAS tests. In summary, the standard accommodations are grouped into the following four categories:
1. Changes in timing or scheduling of the test; for example, administering the test in short intervals or at a specific time of day.
2. Changes in test setting; for example, administering the test in a small group or a separate setting.
3. Changes in test presentation; for example, using a large-print or Braille edition of the test.
4. Changes in how the student responds to test questions; for example, dictating responses to a scribe.
It is important to specifically ask for the special ed. MCAS accommodations necessary for your student in advance since they are not always given without a request.
