Overview: Non-Standard Accommodations

Non-standard accommodations are accommodations offered for students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Section 504 Plan.  Any accommodation different than a standard OSTP accommodation for use on an OSTP test requires prior approval.

Non-Standard Application Timeline

Application Deadline OSDE Response
February 1, 2024 March 15, 2024

The ELA/Reading Read-Aloud accommodation (NS1) and Unique Accommodation (NS2) application for Spring 2024 must be submitted to the OSDE by February 1, 2024. The OSDE will provide a response around March 15, 2024.

Please see the OSTP IEP 504 Accommodations Manual. All requests, including documentation, must be uploaded through the SSO Nonstandard Accommodation Application.

Please submit all documentation, as outlined in the OSTP ELA/Reading Test Read-Aloud Protocol, in a combined PDF file (30 MB Max):

  • All pages of the IEP/504,
  • Evaluation Reports (e.g. RED, MEEGS)
  • All pages of the PAR Administration (or AEM Navigator, as appropriate)
  • All Benchmark/Progress Monitoring Scoring data
  • OSTP ELA/Reading Test Read-Aloud Nonstandard Accommodation Protocol.

Files must be named as follows: "Last name, First Name, MI NS1". Name and STN must match WAVE entry; otherwise, file review will be delayed or rejected. Prior year forms will not be accepted.

As a general test security guideline, students' personal electronic devices are not allowed in the testing environment. If any student requires a medical monitoring device to be present in the testing environment, the district should submit a Unique Accommodation (NS2) application on behalf of the student.

Please access the State Testing Resources webpage for the most updated Oklahoma Schools Testing Program forms and nonstandard accommodation procedures. You may also view the 2023-2024 Nonstandard Accommodation Slide Deck.
