A brief -- the third in a series for the Race to the Top Assessment Consortia -- addressing the need for the Consortia to develop shared assessment participation criteria for students with disabilities, English language learners (ELLs), and ELLs with disabilities. It presents information that shows the variability in member state assessment participation rates and criteria. This brief also identifies ways to address the perspectives underlying variability in participation rates and the questions that Consortia may need to ask as they develop their common participation criteria.
