Accommodations vs. Modifications

You’ve likely heard the terms “accommodation” and “modification.”  While they sound similar, they serve different purposes.

Accommodations provide different ways for students to learn information or communicate their knowledge. The changes basically do not alter or lower the standards or expectations for a subject or a test. Modifications are changes in the content or instructional level of subject matter or tests. They result in changing expectations and creating a different standard.


Change how a student learns the material that is being taught


Change what a student is taught or expected to learn.

Testing Accommodations Resources

Educational Records Bureau (ERB)
The Educational Records Bureau produces and administers standardized tests that assess student skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Under the ERB umbrella, the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE), administered to students in grades 2-12, is widely used in independent schools nationwide. The ERB will arrange test administration that accommodates students who have documented physical challenges or learning differences.

The College Board
The College Board site provides information for high school-age students, parents, and educators regarding PSAT, NMSQT, SAT, and AP testing. It also offers information about eligibility, documentation, and the types of accommodations available and provides a link for obtaining forms.
