NCEO Brief: Including Students with Disabilities in Common Non-Summative Assessments (#6)
Part of the NCEO Brief series.
- Martha L Thurlow, Ross Moen PhD, Laurene L Christensen, Kamarrie Davis, Sheryl Lazarus
A brief -- the sixth in a series for the Race to the Top Assessment Consortia -- addressing the Consortia's need to develop an inclusive approach to their non-summative assessments, including their optional interim assessments. Consideration should be given to: (a) the implementation of universal design principles; (b) the development of clear participation criteria and guidelines; and (c) accommodation policies that account for good testing practices, embedded features of technology-based assessments, and additional accommodations. This brief encourages the Consortia to build on what has been learned from inclusive large-scale assessments.
