In what ways do you make testing accomodations in your classroom? How do you decide which modifications are appropriate and fair when it comes to modifying tests for students on IEPs or 504 plans?

I use a variety of techniques when adapting plans, depending on their specific modifications. For some students, reading a test orally helps. Others just need a quieter environment with few distractions or extended time. I also allow a retest when necessary with extra remediation. Whatever modifications I make, I am sure to not draw attention to them.
