Student Assessment Inventory for School Districts: Considerations for Special Education Assessment Systems

Description

Writes a paper to guide school districts about how to take stock of the assessments that students with disabilities are taking, and ensuring that they are taking only the assessments that serve the most essential purposes. Complaints about too much testing sometimes turn into discussions about all the testing associated with special education services. Students receiving special education are a group of students for whom a special set of assessments may be used. It is important to understand who students with disabilities are and the assessments that are required for these students when addressing questions about too much testing. The paper will include recommendations about how to include special education in a comprehensive assessment system and avoid concerns about too much testing for students with disabilities who receive special education services.
