Description

The process of implementing test accommodations and modifications is a relatively recent development, causing some confusion on how to apply accommodations or modifications and why they are important. Additionally, while teachers are expected to be capable of selecting and implementing appropriate accommodations and modifications, research has found significant deficits in teacher’s knowledge concerning test accommodations and modifications. In order to investigate and address this issue, a survey was developed to gauge the knowledge of test accommodations and modifications among pre-service teachers at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The survey included questions on demographics, as well as questions on fairness, laws, and recommended practices in the area of accommodation and modifications. This online survey was sent to pre-service teachers in the College of Education at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Research findings and implications will be discussed in this presentation.
