Alternate Assessments

Alternate Assessments Give Students with Cognitive Disabilities a Fair Testing Experience

Some students simply cannot take their state’s large-scale summative assessments — even if the test includes every possible accommodation. Alternate assessments allow these students to demonstrate their achievements and uncover places where they need additional work. We could teach a master class on the development of these alternate assessments. We’ve even taken the manual-labor-intensive process online through our Collection of Evidence tool for a client who wanted to bring their alternate assessments into the 21st century.
