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.
Facts and Information About Ebola
The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is working with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to provide information about the Ebola virus to schools. And though, officials and health experts continue to stress that the risk to Minnesotans is currently very low, Gov Dayton and and MDH Commissioner Ehlinger have convened leaders in the health, human services and public safety sectors to develop prevention plans for our state.
