Findings

Setting accommodation for sixth grade ELL students did not significantly impact their number sense and numeration skills on a large-scale math assessment. The authors suggest that decision makers provide justification for using the setting accommodation depending on the specific situation for each student as this study did not provide support for the large-scale implementation of setting accommodations for any of the groups investigated.
