This blog is an exploration of how thinking about accommodations may be different as the accountability movement moves to computer-based testing. As state tests become more computer-based, this will likely move instruction to be more computer-based as well. Thinking about accommodations for students with disabilities is changing!

There are several entries in this site that address not only accommodations but also universal design for learning and assessment. Universal design is a critical consideration because until now, UD has been something done "up front" and accommodations have been applied "on the back end." But now, technology environments allow what we've thought as accommodations to be built in. What does this mean for how we define accommodations?
