For instance, the section may include test administration instructions, security precautions, and training requirements.</p> <p>The intent of this section is to assist districts in making accommodation decisions. It will be updated as needed based on educator feedback. This section will not be included on all accommodations. </p> <p>23</p> <p>Former Dyslexia AccommodationsThe Dyslexia Bundled Accommodations were part of the TAKS program for reading grades 3 through 8. The bundle of 3 accommodations does not exist for the STAAR program.However, there are several accommodations that could be useful for a student with dyslexia.Oral administration will now be expanded to include allowing the TA to read aloud the questions and answer choices from the reading tests to students who meet the eligibility criteria; the TA can never read aloud the reading selections.24</p> <p>Former Dyslexia AccommodationsExtra time to complete the test (until the end of the published school day) may be allowed if the student meets the eligibility criteria. Students identified with dyslexia will most likely be included in the eligibility criteria. </p> <p>Having an extra day to complete the test is reserved for students with serious medical conditions or other unique and severe situations. Students identified with dyslexia will most likely NOT be included in the eligibility criteria. </p> <p> (These policies have not yet been finalized.)</p> <p>25Contact InformationCheck inside pisd for latest updates and information</p> <p>E-mailLori.perez@pisd.edu </p> <p>Call x2884726</p>
