Accommodations Toolkit

Accommodations Toolkit Introduction

The National Center on Educational Outcome’s (NCEO’s) Accommodations Toolkit provides easy-to-use summaries of the academic research literature on specific accommodations for students with disabilities as well as policy analyses.

The Accommodations Toolkit is organized by accommodation (e.g., tactile graphics, braille, test breaks, extended time, etc.), with a research fact sheet for each accommodation. The toolkit also includes a policy analysis that summarizes how each accommodation was included in states’ accessibility policies. The resources in the toolkit are designed to support the work of state education agencies, but may also be helpful to technical assistance providers, researchers, and others. Individualized Education Program (IEP) team members should refer to their state's policy when making decisions about a student's assessment accommodations.
