sum, not a list of addition facts. Each axis may be numbered up to 9, but no
higher than 9. Indicating special numbers (e.g., highlighting or circling even
11
numbers within the body of the chart) is NEVER allowed.

Mathematics: Multiplication Charts
Multiplication charts may be used. The multiplication chart must be a grid used to
find the product, not a list of multiplication facts. Each axis may be numbered up
to 12, but no higher than 12. Indicating special numbers (e.g., highlighting or
circling perfect squares within the body of the chart) is NEVER allowed.

If the use of this accommodation is distracting to
other students or compromises the security of
the test, an individual administration is required.
Colors may be used in a supplemental aid to
enhance readability or improve tracking, but may
never be used as a label.
Pictures may be used in pictorial models of
geometric figures and graphics of scientific
concepts, but not in other supplemental aids.
Using a supplemental aid as an accommodation
during classroom instruction and testing should
not replace the teaching of subject-specific skills
as outlined in the TEKS.
•
27
The student must be able to understand the information
that the supplemental aid provides and simply need
assistance recalling the concepts.
•
The test administrator may not remind the student to use
the supplemental aid or explain to the student the
information included on the supplemental aid.
•
The supplemental aid must be factual and error-free.
•
The supplemental aid must be concise and well organized
so that a student can easily access the information. The
supplemental aid must not contain numerous pages, as
this may be more cumbersome than helpful when used
during a statewide assessment.
•
If a student writes on the supplemental aid while taking
the statewide assessment, the supplemental aid must be
destroyed after testing.
