Texas Education Agency (TEA) has posted an up-dated Power Point training for the use of allowable supplemental aids for STAAR assessments.

Another important reminder, supplemental aids do not have to be STAAR compliant the first time the aid is introduced to the student. Provide what is necessary for the aid to be meaningful for the student based on the student’s individual needs. Then work to scaffold and adapt the aid to then be test ready by STAAR time.
