Co:Writer Test Mode: Using Writing Accommodations on the Assessment

Presented by: Kevin Johnston

About the Webinar

It’s important for school districts to implement their accommodations plans well ahead of Assessment time.

In this webinar recording Kevin Johnston, VP Research & Development at Don Johnston Incorporated, shares how Co:Writer Test Mode can help you comply with your state’s writing accommodation requirements.

Co:Writer builds in settings that align with over 50 different state assessments*—automatically adjusting settings based on documented state requirements and then locking those settings during the assessment.

Kevin covered Set/Up/Management, Settings, Installation, Test Security, and getting data for Proof of Accommodation Use. Watch to also get a sneak peek into Don Johnston’s latest collaboration with Pearson to embed accommodations directly into the TestNav-based assessment—coming in fall 2020.

*Check with your local regulations and authorities to confirm that Co:Writer can be used on your state assessment. States do not endorse specific products, and all of the work done to comply with state regulations were based on published requirements.
