Accommodations Handbook

What are testing accommodations?

  • Testing accommodations are necessary practices and/or procedures which are intended to provide equitable access to the test for students with disabilities by limiting or eliminating the effects of a student’s disabilities on their performance.
  • Testing accommodations are provided to assist students with disabilities in demonstrating their true academic and intellectual abilities.
  • The provision of testing accommodations is not intended to reduce learning expectations.

If you have any questions or concerns about your family's ability to provide anything needed for your student to complete testing, please contact EMA immediately and well in advance of your scheduled test date.
