Learning Opportunities for Your Child Through Alternate Asseessments: Alternate Assessments Based on Modified Academic Achievement Standards
The National Center on Educational Outcomes has produced a new guide to help parents of students with disabilities understand a new state alternate assessment allowable under No Child Left Behind. While few states are currently offering this assessment option, some will be developing it in the coming years. Parents will need to understand what it is and how to decide if it is the right option for their child. The guide is available for download free of charge at
The Advocacy Institute, www.AdvocacyInstitute.org was pleased to assist NCEO in the preparation of this new resource.
