Accommodations Triangle - STAAR

Type 1 & Type 2 Accommodations

For Students with Disabilities

For the purposes of the statewide assessments, students needing accommodations due to a disability include:



  • Students with an identified disability who receive special education services and meet established eligibility criteria for certain accommodations
  • Students with an identified disability who receive Section 504 services and meet established eligibility criteria for certain accommodations
  • Students with a disabling condition who do not receive special education or Section 504 services but meet established eligibility criteria for certain accommodations

Differences:

Type 1 Accommodations:

- most frequently used accommodations

- decisions made & approved locally (ARD, 504, etc.)


Type 2 Accommodations:

- require TEA approval

- Accommodations Request Form (ARF) required.

- only a very small percentage of students meet criteria for these

Let's take a closer look at a few of these accommodations.
