Special Circumstance Codes for 2016-17 ELA and Math NYSAA

A BTC/DTC can enter the special circumstance code under the Test Management Tab on the table where the TIP is retrieved. In order to apply a special circumstance code, the student must be added to Educator Portal, added to a roster and the First Contact Survey must be completed. This will result in a testlet being generated.

Once the testlet is generated it would not be opened and the teacher would notify the BTC or DTC that a special circumstance code needs to be applied.  The BTC or DTC would enter the special circumstance code one time per content area. Documentation of the special circumstance must be kept on file.
