What is Letís Go Learnís policy on test accommodations?
 
Overview: Given the nature of Letís Go Learn assessments, test accommodations will tend to have more flexibility based on the discretion of the resource teacher or the district policy. DORA, ADAM, and DOMA are diagnostic assessments, meaning that their data is generally not used for high-stakes accountability. As a result, if the studentís accommodation calls for the allowance of a calculator during a math assessment, Letís Go Learn permits this accommodation to be made and does not have any strict policy against a teacher or administrator making this decision. Scores are not rolled up into a normalizing algorithm, which in the case of a high-stakes assessment might restrict scores with accommodations from being used.

Because these are computer adaptive assessments, the hardware upon which a student will be tested will provide additional accommodations for students with particular needs. Letís Go Learn does not have a policy against teachers using any specialized computer, audio, or visual equipment as long as it is in fulfillment of the studentís accommodations.

Built into Letís Go Learn assessments are the following features:

Repeat audio buttons: Allow students to have audio played again at their discretion.
Non-timed silent reading: By design, passages in the DORA assessment are non-timed. This means students who require more time to read are automatically given as much time as needed to read any passage.
Scaling of questions on the screen: All test questions and responses scale to the monitor resolution. Thus, for students whose accommodation may be visual and who are using special computer equipment, our test questions and answers will scale in size to the monitor and/or browser window.
Reading of math word problems: The ADAM assessment reads all sentences or paragraphs aloud to the student. This not only controls for a reading bias but also provides audio support for students with reading issues, such as some forms of dyslexia. This is built into the assessment and does not need to be turned on.

Conclusion: Because Letís Go Learn assessments are diagnostic, the practice is for teachers to use the sub-test data to come up with a prescriptive path for each student in the areas of reading and mathematics. Therefore, it is generally not necessary to make adjustments to the assessments. For some students, certain sub-tests may not be as informative. Therefore, the practice is for teachers to be taught the nature of each sub-test, which the Letís Go Learn staff does in its ďData InterpretationĒ trainings. Then teachers can use the information as they see fit for their individual students.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
