Universal Design and Assessments
This presentation shares information about an updated state guide to universally designed assessments. The purpose of the guide is to provide states with strategies for designing tests from the very beginning. The objective is to create tests that present an accurate measure of the knowledge and skills of diverse student populations. It was presented on July 14, 2021 at the forum on Education for Each and Every Student: Perspectives on Universal Design in 2021. This forum was jointly hosted by NCEO and the Council of Chief State School Officers' (CCSSO), Assessments, Standards, and Education for Students with Disabilities (ASES) collaborative.
