Test Accommodation Discussion
 Kentucky
is out of alignment with
national guidance (i.e., allowing readers
on the reading test and extended time
for all).
 The
Kentucky Board of Education has
reviewed the Inclusion regulation (703
KAR 5:070) which defines testing
accommodations.
18
Test Accommodation Discussion

Regulation revisions will not require change to
student IEP for the classroom, but will restrict which
classroom practices may be used in testing.

Recommended changes include:
Students with Disabilities
 remove readers on the reading test
 prohibit prompting/cueing
 remove calculators on non-calculator portion of tests
Limited English Proficient/English Learners
 remove assistive technology and student-generated
glossaries
 prohibit prompting/cueing
19
Regulation Revision Timeline
August-September 2011 and ongoing
 Discussion with stakeholders
October 2011
 Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) conducts first read
of Inclusion regulation.
December 2011
 KBE conducts second read of regulation.
 If approved, regulation moves forward to public
hearing and legislative committee review.
Inclusion regulation likely revised before spring 2012 testing.
