The Right Needs To Talk To The Left

Someone needs to tell the left hand what the right hand is doing. I don't care who is doing test programming, it has got to be done correctly. Different departments have to work together to help the kids.

Five boys arrived at the walk in room of Living Environment exam this afternoon, five boys who have IEPs and special testing conditions. Five boys arrived to take an exam where no provisions were made to give them these special conditions. The proctor recognized one of the boys and called around to make sure he was taken care of. The other kids were noticed and helped because of this one boy.

These kids should speak up for themselves but we all know they don't. This is just another example of how kids, especially kids with special needs fall through the cracks. If not for the proctor, these kids probably would not have gotten their extended time and readers.

That is the job of the administration and/or special ed coordinator to make sure this is taking care of. Usually their scan sheets would say testing modification if someone is doing their job correctly.
