Assessment is the process through which instructional staff determine how much and how well students have learned. Assessment accommodations allow students to demonstrate knowledge and skills without compromising the information being evaluated. They include assessment practices such as extending time limits, giving oral instead of written tests, and providing a distraction-free environment.
