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.

Subject: Field Tests

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.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide,

Dave Ryley
