What testing accommodations are allowed under the Iowa Plan?

Answer: 

IEP teams should refer to the Test Coordinator's Guide for items related to accommodations that are appropriate for ITBS/ITED administration. This should be done in preparation for documenting student assessment conditions for the IEP.

An accommodation is something that is changed relative to the administration of the test that does not change the construct being assessed. For example, reading a reading test is not a valid accommodation, because it changes the nature of the test to become a listening test.
