Description [S.l.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1996 
35 p. 

This bibliography provides abstracts of 28 recent (most were published since 1993) books, journal articles, and other documents concerned with testing accommodations for students with disabilities. The emphasis was on studies examining the effects of testing accommodations on the technical integrity of assessment measures. However, the bibliography notes that, currently, comprehensive empirical studies of the effects of testing accommodations are still noticeably absent from the literature, but that three federally supported projects are currently addressing issues related to the assessment of students with disabilities. The literature reviewed is organized into four sections: (1) empirical studies of testing accommodations; (2) legal considerations related to testing and accommodations; (3) teacher and student perceptions of classroom and testing adaptations and modifications; and (4) conceptual issues. Appended are a list of current project titles and recipient organizations. (Contains 49 references from a 1993 bibliography.) (DB)
