NCEO Reports: An Updated State Guide to Universally Designed Assessments (#431)
This Guide is an update to the State Guide to Universally Designed Assessments that was originally published by NCEO in 2006. It provides a brief overview of what a universally designed assessment is, followed by a set of steps for states to consider when designing and developing, or revising, their summative assessments. The focus of this Guide is states’ summative assessments—general content assessments of reading/language arts, mathematics, science, and other content areas; alternate assessments based on alternate academic achievement standards (AA-AAAS); English language proficiency (ELP) assessments; and alternate-ELP assessments.
