The Accommodations Advisory Review Panel conducts reviews of proposed additions to the approved accommodations and non-standard test administration practices listed in the Minnesota Procedures Manual to ensure that accommodations and non-standard practices will not invalidate interpretations and judgments based on the resulting test score.
Members of the Accommodations Advisory Review Panel include special education teachers, special education directors, English Language teachers, deaf educators, vision specialists, parents, school principals, district assessment coordinators, educational measurement experts, and university researchers. Panelists serve a two-year term. The panel meets in person one day each June.
