Assessments of Students with Significant Disabilities: A Russia-U.S. Partnership (UPP)

Share this page

Description

Establishes a partnership between the University of Minnesota (UMN) and Krasnoyarsk State Pedagogical University (KSPU), Russia, to develop and evaluate a system of formative assessment suited for use with students with significant disabilities (e.g. intellectual and multiple disabilities). Given the special learning needs of such students, teachers in both countries are struggling to meaningfully assess academic progress in basic subjects. In this project, University faculty at UMN and KSPU conduct joint research to develop and evaluate the technical properties of a technology-assisted, curriculum-based system of assessment designed to meaningfully assess students with significant disabilities.
