I work for a school for students with disabilities, so we have to work with these testing modifications for every regents. It is state law that they get it if it is on their IEP. These should be on their IEP's in IEP direct or on the hard copy. Separate location means you have to put them in a separate room perhaps with a one to one. Questions read means they need a one to one or an assistant to read each question to them. Perhaps go to your principal and ask them to supply all of this support. Extra time you know means perhaps they get double the time of the regular students. I don't know about questions 2. Sorry.

Our school was lucky enough to win the NYS lottery... for Regents Field tests. We have done them many times before but I have 2 questions:
1) What do we do with students who have accommodations? The tests are supposed to be done in one class period but some students are entitled to extra time or having questions read. Does anyone know how to handle this?
2) Why are we giving field tests in Integrated Algebra if next June is the last one? I was under the impression the questions that are field tested wouldn't be used on an exam for a while.
