FastBridge™ does not provide them but we do allow certain special accommodations, which may be helpful for students with disabilities or for students on Individual Education Plans (IEPs). These accommodations are allowed for either screening or progress monitoring. Any other accommodations should be listed on the student's IEP.
- CBM assessments, available via paper and pencil, can be taken as needed for any reason.
- Text Magnification
- Sound Amplification
- Extra Breaks
- Preferential Seating and Use of Quiet Space
- Proxy Responses
- Extended Time (for aReading, aMath, and the untimed portions of CBMmath, earlyReading and earlyMath only)
- Students with different needs or abilities may take the computer-based assessments on a tablet-type device to facilitate screen optimization.
Calculators are not allowed unless the student is on an IEP that allows calculators.
Pencil & Paper can be used to help work out the problems (This does not apply to CBMmath Automaticity.)
The tests were normed without accommodations. Anything in the student's IEP is allowed, however, bear in mind that the student's score will be compared to norms and benchmarks that do not take the accommodation into account.
