I’m in Florida as well so we can read question and answer choices only...

I have to say, even for many of my students with that accommodation it still doesn’t make much of a difference in their scores on reading. It does make a difference with math but when they can’t read the passage... reading questions and answer choices doesn’t help a ton.

I don’t see it as changing the assessment to listening comprehension in our case at all, you can’t read them the passage or “hot text” that is included in questions.

Some would say extended time is an unfair advantage too... but, most of our ESE,504, and ESOL students get extended time.

Personally, I think the assessment should be untimed for everybody. Are we t sing reading comprehension or how much you can do in 80 minutes?
