Guides for Students

The Alberta government creates and maintains the following guides to help students prepare to write diploma exams:

 

Diploma Accomodations

Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, all students are eligible for accommodations and provisions to write diploma exams without an application process. Most accommodations, for the purpose of writing diploma exams, are reviewed, managed and ordered at the school-level. The Special Cases and Accommodations team will review accommodation requests related to the following circumstances:

 Unique accommodations,

 Mature students not attending high school and

 Home schooled students

Students must understand, and adhere to, the accommodation and provision administration directives, rules and procedures of writing a diploma exam with the use of accommodations and provision(s).

Mature Students Who Do Not Attend High Schools and Home Schooled Students

Mature students who do not attend a high school and home schooled students are eligible for all of the below accommodations and provisions. To ensure the writing centre is prepared for these students to write diploma exams with accommodations and provisions, they should be informed to contact the Special Cases and Accommodations team directly by emailing special.cases@gov.ab.ca. All requests for physical diploma exam materials (CDs, MP3s, large print, Braille, coloured paper) must be made by the deadline for each diploma exam administration (see Schedules and Significant Dates section).

Accommodations must be coordinated with your subject teacher well in advance and put in place as part of your instructional plan. 

See this Alberta Education document that describes accommodations provided by Alberta Education

When working toward meeting learning outcomes, logistics play an important role. Once again Alison’s background in technology based education shows her mastery of the technical skills needed to help students achieve their goals. While working on the leadership conference alongside Alison, it was no challenge to understand what my role was or how I was to undertake my next responsibility. With detailed emails, organized Google Hangout sessions, scheduled meetings, and clear deadlines for deliverables, each and every student was equipped with the resources to ensure they could accomplish the work the needed.
