General Reminders
P26 Have directions, passage and prompt read
aloud (Allowed for WESTEST 2 Online Writing and
NAEP Writing) This is the only read aloud option for this
test. P02 is not a universal read aloud code for Online
Writing.
R04 Indicate responses to a scribe, all
elements to be scored (Smarter Balanced,
WESTEST 2 and Online Writing)
http://wvde.state.wv.us/oaa/westest_training_writing_scribe.html
Screen Readers
P21Use screen-reading software to access computer
Allowed for: WESTEST 2 Online Writing, ACT COMPASS Mathematics
and other computer-based assessments excluding WESTEST 2 and
Compass Writing Skills.
Description: Screen-reading software provides text-to-speech
translation.
When to select: For students who are vision impaired, and for whom
the use of screen-reading software is the typical mode of accessing
written material.
Notes for implementation: Screen readers are allowed only when it is
typical access. Only JAWS 11 and 12 work as well as Systems Mobile
Access (see Appendix L on page 89 for more directions). On NAEP the
text-to-speech function is a built-in universal design element.
High Contrast
P28Use high contrast for online assessments
Allowed for: Smarter Balanced, WESTEST 2 and Online Writing, ACT
COMPASS, NAEP, and other computer based assessments.
Description: Enable students to adjust screen background or font color,
based on student needs or preferences. This may include reversing the
colors for the entire interface or choosing the color of font and
background. Reverse contrast turns the screen from white to black and
creates text in white.
When to select: For students who have vision or perception difficulties
and use this accommodation instructionally. Students with attention
difficulties may need this support for viewing test content. It also may
be needed by some students with visual impairments or other print
disabilities (including learning disabilities). Choice of colors should be
informed by evidence that color selections meet the student’s needs.
Preparing for Spring 2014
WESTEST 2 ACCOMMODATIONS

use of enlarged computer monitors or computers with
screen-enlargement programs. Some students use closedcircuit television to enlarge print and display printed
material with various image enhancements on a screen.
When to select: For students who are visually impaired,
and for whom computer screen adjustment is the typical
mode of accessing onscreen written material.
High Contrast
P28Use high contrast for online assessments

ACCOMMODATIONS MONITORING
State Accommodations
Monitoring Policies
• West Virginia Policies: 2340, 2419, 2417 provide
guidance for accommodations for students with IEP,
504 and LEP plans.
• All required district and state assessments must
provide accommodations monitoring using the
WVS.326 Process.
• Students should always receive the accommodations
identified in their plans for other assessments.
• Individual accommodations data is archived in the
West Virginia Education Information System (WVEIS).

ACCOMMODATIONS VERIFICATION
Prior to Testing:
Verification
Follow the steps outlines in the
Participation Guidelines.
• Accommodations are verified:
(WVEIS WOW is compared to
current IEP,LEP and 504 plan)
• Assessment decisions are
made prior to testing.
• The only way to change an
accommodation(s) is by
holding an appropriate IEP
meeting/addendum.
• Finalizing it in the Online IEP.
Your County
THE WVS 326 FORM &
MONITORING
The 326 Process
• The WVS.326 form will be provided for all
WV-MAP assessments.
• One form will be provided for each student
who should receive accommodations.
• WVS. 326 video
http://wvde.state.wv.us/oaa/videos/WV_32
6/Documentation%20Procedures.zip
WVS.326
• New WVS.326 form includes
all the accommodations
changes
• All pre-slugging and data
entry one side(no flipping
back and forth)
• Directions on the back side
• Data entry is the same
• Complete information on
accommodations and the
WVS. 326 process is included
in the Participation
Guidelines.
During the Assessment
• Data is marked for each accommodation that a student
should be receive according to their current plan.
• If you provide an accommodation not identified on the
form, you have over-accommodated a student.
• You may add an accommodation to a pre-slugged form;
if you need to delete an accommodation, a new form
must be filled out.
• Teachers/BLC review forms daily at the site to assure
they are documenting the form correctly.
• Report all errors to Principal/BLC.
Let’s Talk About Codes
If you mark Provided “Yes”- this means the student
was given the identified accommodation.
If you mark “No”- this means the student was not
provided the identified accommodation. This is an
accommodations breach UNLESS it is a:
• Code 1-the student refused; or
• Code 2-the accommodation is not
allowed/applicable for this test
If “no” is not marked with a code 1 or 2, then it
constitutes an accommodations error that requires
documentation.
Common Errors
in Filling Out the WVS.326 Form
Over-accommodating
Under-accommodating
• Selecting “Yes” when
accommodation is not
pre-slugged
• Selecting “Yes” when an
accommodation was
not allowed/not
applicable
• Failing to provide a
currently identified
accommodation
• Selecting “No” and
failing to identify a code
1 (refused) or code 2
(not allowed/not
applicable)
Training Issues
•
•
•
•
Reasons for errors
Not understanding when
specific accommodations
are allowed for a test
Inappropriate use of the not
applicable/not allowable
reason code
Accommodations not
verified/finalized or entered
by the pre-slug
Failure to sign or date the
form
•
•
•
•
How to Fix
Retrain on accommodations
Use the quick guide in
Participation Guidelines
Clarify how to use NA
reason code
Emphasize how to add an
accommodation
Remind examiners to review
sheets before submitting
What to do about students who do
not receive accommodations?
All incidents for failing to provide an accommodation requires written documentation.
•
•
The CTC will review all accommodation breaches with principals/building level coordinators
and report any findings to the Special Education, Title III and/or 504 director(s) and to the
Office of Assessment and Accountability.
If a student has been denied accommodations listed within the IEP, 504 or LEP plan, there
has been a breach in the integrity/accuracy of test results. Therefore, the CTC or county
special education director should contact the principal who must inform the
parent/guardian of the testing administration breach and provide the following options:
– Test is invalidated and the student is retested using a breach form (if the testing window is still
open).
– Test is scored.
– Test is invalidated and student receives a score of ―0.
If the second or third option is selected—there must be a signed written agreement
between the parent/guardian and principal/building level coordinator. Copies of the
agreement must be kept on file with the CTC/county special education director, Section 504
director, or Title III director.

FINAL REMINDERS
Accommodations Data
• Be sure the current and appropriate accommodations are reflected
in the WOW Accommodations App.
How is the data entered into the system:
• Accommodations for students with disabilities will be entered by
finalizing the data in the Online IEP.
• With the exception that students with a 504 plan will be entered
into green screen.
• Accommodations for students who are LEP will be entered by the
LEP Plan.
How is the system data reviewed and verified:
All accommodations are verified by the WVEIS WOW Accommodations
APP which supports the WVS 326 monitoring of accommodations.
Accommodations Checklist
 Identify accommodations changes for each assessment
(WESTEST 2 including Online Writing and Smarter Balanced
Field Test).
 Emphasize the collection dates.
 Review IEP’s, 504’s and LEP’s for any changes necessary
regarding changes for accommodations.
 Conduct any addendums or meetings for students to be
eligible to receive the appropriate accommodation prior to
collection dates.
 Districts must verify and record each student who receives
accommodations. This means the Online IEP must be
“finalized”.
Reminders
• Review the changes to accommodations and
their codes prior to each assessment.
• Review the WESTEST 2 accommodations
changes for the transition online.
• Review and consider Smarter Balanced field
test accommodations, if the student is taking
the field test this spring.
• Select Smarter Balanced accommodations for
all IEP’s written after April 1.

Why do we have to improve?
“It is not enough to have a list of available
accommodations. Rather, accommodations must
be used for instruction and assessment, they
must be monitored, and they must be used
appropriately so that scores are valid and provide
information about a student’s knowledge and
skills”.
(NCEO, 2012)
