This paper focuses on the use of accommodations by students with disabilities in large-scale assessment programs. The paper is divided into three sections. The first section summarizes the primary issues relevant to including students with disabilities in large-scale testing. The second sections summarizes the research on such participation in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The third section synthesizes the research on mathematics test accommodations conducted over the past 20 years. Finally, the paper abstracts eight major reviews on accommodation research and describe 37 primary research studies by the type of test (demands), the use of accommodations, the student populations, and the general outcomes (of both accommodations and participation). Appended is: Abstracted Primary Summaries on Mathematics Test Accommodations in K-12. (Contains 2 tables.) [This paper is one of a set of research-oriented papers commissioned by National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) to serve as background information for attendees of the NAGB Conference on Increasing the Participation of Students with Disabilities (SD) and limited English proficient (LEP) Students in NAEP.]
