The samples are annotated by educators to support student instruction in writing by showing how student writing meets or exceeds the standard. These writing samples are another source of student writing to help calibrate student expectations by grade level.

NOTE: Only the approved organizers and supplemental reference sheets listed below may be used for ELA and/or mathematics RICAS tests by students who meet the criteria of the A9 accommodation listed. While text or graphics may not be added, it is permissible to remove text or graphics to suit the needs of the student.
NOTE about using pre-approved graphic organizers and reference sheets during testing and instruction: These graphic organizers and reference sheets may be helpful to students without disabilities. If appropriate, educators may use these graphic organizers and reference sheets during instruction for all students, not just students with disabilities. However, students without the A9 accommodation in their IEP or 504 Plan may not use the graphic organizers or reference sheets during RICAS testing. Educators should not feel the need to incorporate these graphic organizers or reference sheets into their instruction if they have others they use or feel they are not appropriate for their students.
The approved graphic organizers, checklists, and supplemental reference sheets listed below are for use by students with disabilities in grades 3-8 who have the Pre-approved Graphic Organizer or Supplemental Reference Sheet accommodation (A9, page 14, RICAS Accommodations and Accessibility Features Manual) listed in their IEP or 504 Plan. RIDE encourages educators to familiarize any student who will be using these reference sheets or graphic organizers with these tools during instruction throughout the school year since students using these tools should be comfortable using them during RICAS testing.
