Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines (UAAG)

Dec 20, 2023

The Idaho UAAG describes the universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations available for the ISATs in all content areas. The UAAG reflects the Smarter Balanced framework for accessibility for all students; including English Learners (ELs), students with disabilities, Els with disabilities, and other groups of students who may experience issues accessing the ISATs in ELA/Literacy, Mathematics, and/or Science. The Guidelines are intended for district- and school-level personnel and decision-making teams, particularly Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams, as they prepare for and implement the ISATs. The Idaho UAAG provides information for classroom teachers, English development educators, special education teachers, and related services personnel to use in selecting and administering universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations for those students who need them. The Idaho UAAG is also intended for assessment staff and administrators who oversee the decisions that are made in instruction and assessment.
