On Thursday, February 23, 2017, we are introducing Personal Needs and Preferences (PNP) and Individualized Education Program (IEP) functionality.

Admin App

IEPs/PNPs can be created and edited exclusively in the Admin app.

In the Admin app, we will:

  • Retire the current File Note behavior, as the IEP makes it unnecessary.
  • Add an IEP text editor to the Edit User popup.
  • Add the following two PNP settings to the Edit User popup:
    • Ignore time limit on assessments
    • Limit number of options on multiple-choice questions to [...]
Admin App

Teacher App

Teachers have read-only access to IEPs.

In the Teacher app, this change means:

Teacher App

  1. Is it possible for teachers to make the modifications for a specific student and specific course? For example, if a student has three different teachers can each teacher choose to reduce the number of MC questions?
  2. Instead of having an admin have control of these modifications it may make more sense for individual teachers make the accommodations.

Are there any additional PNP options planned? Overriding the assessment settings for an IEP student to allow them to use a calculator, show the back button. allow bookmarking,  and showing the highlighter would be excellent on a per student basis.
