Multi-State GSEG Consortium Towards a Defensible Alternate Assessment Based on Modified Achievement Standards (AA-MAS)
Studied state data on students with disabilities, the consequences of assessment options, and possible instruction and assessment changes for these students. More specifically, the project explored:
- How student data gathered by states can be used to improve student assessment and instruction for students with disabilities,
- The intended and unintended consequences of various assessment options for students with disabilities, and
- How the instruction and assessments of students who may qualify for an AA-MAS may need to be changed to ensure that there are high expectations for learning and that the students will have the opportunity to demonstrate what they know.
