Equal opportunity for all students to access instruction and demonstrate learning is a fundamental principle of public education. Accessibility resources represent a set of tools that help a student better access classroom instruction. They are also provided in a testing environment so that students can do their best to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. The Smarter Balanced Assessment System was designed to maximize accessibility for all students. An array of universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations are available to help ensure that Smarter Balanced summative and interim assessments generate a fair and accurate estimate of each student’s achievement. The participants of this course will: • Understand the importance of accessibility resources • Learn about the various universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations available within the Smarter Balanced System • Learn the initial steps in the identification of supports appropriate for each student • Explore examples of student learning needs/characteristics that might be addressed through the use of accessibility resources

Intended Audience

Special education teachers, general education teachers, administrators, school psychologists, and speech- language pathologists.
