Utah Assessment Participation and Accommodations Policy, 2007-08
Utah State Office of Education
The purpose of this document is to establish the statewide policy for the participation of students in the Utah Performance Assessment System for Students (U-PASS). The central elements of this policy are: (1) Rules for inclusion in the statewide assessment program (U-PASS); (2) Limited allowances for exempting or excusing students from assessments; and (3) Allowable accommodations for test administration and student responses. U-PASS serves as an accountability program and as a system for evaluating individual student performance at all grade levels, although grade 12 students participate on a limited basis. Assessment accommodations are allowed on all components of U-PASS, but they vary test by test, and according to student characteristics. Seven appendixes include: (1) Checklist to Plan Accommodation Use; (2) Student Questionnaire on Accommodations; (3) Assessment Accommodations Plan; (4) Assessment Accommodations Student-Teacher Agreement; (5) Logistics Planning Checklist; (6) Accommodations Journal; and (7) Guidelines for Assessment of English Language Learners. (Contain 2 figures and 12 tables.)
