What is the difference between a testing accommodation and program modification?

Testing modifications are changes to the way a test is administered to a student. For example, a student who has extended time (1.5X) to complete school tests will be given standard time plus half-time to complete a test. If standard time to complete a test is thirty minutes, the child with extended time (1.5X) will be given a total of 45 minutes to complete the test.

Program accommodations are changes to a student's existing program at school. An example would be attendance in an academic support or resource room during the regular school day.
