2015-2016 Guidelines for Selection and Use of Accommodations for Keystone Exams and PSSA Tests

Speaking: Diane, John

PDE strongly encourages the participation of teachers who directly administer the PSSAs or Keystone Exams and are responsible for the implementation of accommodations for all students, including students with individualized education programs and 504 Plans, and all English language learner students. Presenters from PDE will examine the PSSA and Keystone Exams Accommodations Guidelines for Paper/Pencil and Online Assessments. During this session, presenters will highlight changes and discuss appropriate use of accommodations in statewide assessments. Please note there are several significant changes regarding Unique Accommodations procedures. Test security and administration procedures will also be discussed.
