The answer Mr. Glazener gave [in his June 17 letter, “Proctors Ensure Integrity in Testing,” Xpress] explained clearly the duties and responsibilities of a proctor but didn’t address the particular situation. When a child has an IEP (Individual Education Plan) s/he is usually tested in a small group or individually depending upon needs as determined by teachers/parents/administrators.
This is all included on the IEP and must be followed, as it is a legally binding document. For example, a child with ADHD may be too distracted in a classroom with 20 other students. Or his reading skills may not be on grade level, so the test would be read aloud to him to ensure that he is being tested on his mathematical ability. I am curious about why the proctor was not better informed about the testing process.
