Pre-approved graphic organizers for use with accommodation 20
The pre-approved ELA graphic organizers posted to this website may be used by students with disabilities who have accommodation 20 listed in their IEP or 504 plan. Additional approval by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is not required.
Care must be taken to provide students with an organizer that is appropriate for their individual learning needs, and for the test being administered (i.e., either for open responses on the ELA Reading Comprehension Test or the ELA Composition test).
Please refer to the Requirements for the Participation of Students with Disabilities in MCAS (2015-2016) for additional information on accommodation 20.
