Extended Time for EL Learners
On February 22, 2017, Test Information and Distribution Engine (TIDE) was updated so that accommodations can only be entered for students with an individualized education program (IEP) or Section 504 Plan. English learners (EL) students who require time extension for science are allowed to receive this accommodation. The update to the TIDE will not allow you to indicate this under test setting. Therefore, you will not be able to indicate time extension for science for your EL students in TIDE, but you can still provide this support during testing. Your test proctor will need to be made aware of EL students with time extension for science prior to testing.
