This is a request for a Special Paper Version (SPV) of the online AZELLA tests for one (1) student eligible for the administration of the AZELLA and has a current IEP or 504 Plan.
One request submission will cover all AZELLA test administrations (Placement, Fall 2021 SAFT, and the Spring 2022 Reassessment) for the student during the current school year. This request is only valid for the current school year. If the student’s IEP or 504 Plan is updated for instruction and state assessments during the school year and after this initial submission, you will need to submit a new request with the updated IEP or 504 Plan.
This SPV request form is restricted to online testing EL or potential EL students who also have a SPED need with a current IEP or 504 Plan that restricts the student from accessing and using electronic devices for regular classroom instruction and state assessments due to a disability.
This request must include specific information and documentation pages extracted from the student’s IEP or 504 Plan that pertain to accommodations for special paper versions of the student's technology-based instructional materials for regular instruction and AZELLA State testing. The paper version accommodation for the student's technology-based instructional materials should be used routinely during regular instruction throughout the school year and identified as an "AZELLA" state test accommodation.
For students who require an accommodation for enlarging the online AZELLA test, TestNav includes a Zoom and a Magnifier feature for the student to enlarge the test on his or her monitor. If the screen on the student's testing device is not large enough, then the electronic testing device can be connected to a larger monitor. The online AZELLA test may also be administered in a 1-on-1 test administration in a room or area where the test can be enlarged on a screen or wall. Therefore, when either of these accommodations fit the needs of the student and are documented in the student's IEP or 504 Plan, the request for an SPV test is not necessary.
The submission of this request form does not constitute an approval for the additional accommodation of a special paper version being requested. ADE will review the request and then ADE will provide a response to the AZELLA District Test Coordinator that includes approval, denial, or a request for additional information that pertains to the SPV accommodation being requested. The student may NOT begin AZELLA testing until ADE's response indicates to proceed with the administration of the AZELLA test and only after the paper test materials (if approved) have arrived at the district office.
