Academic assessment of performance

In a related national survey, Jayanthi, Epstein, Polloway, and Bursuck (1996) examined the perceptions of general education teachers regarding adaptations for testing commonly used for students with disabilities. These adaptations included among others (I) giving individual help with directions: (2) reading test questions to students: (3) simplifying wording of test questions: and (4) providing extra space on tests for answering. A total of 66.6% of the teachers sampled indicated that it was not fair to make testing adaptations only for students with disabilities.
