Alternate Assessments Based On Alternate Achievement Standards
by William Schafer & Robert Lisitz
What is alternate assessment and why do we need to learn about it? Every state is working to know the answer both to comply with federal requirements for evaluating students with severe cognitive disabilities, and to ensure that all students reach their full potential. This comprehensive book is the first to gather today's best knowledge about alternate assessments so professionals can act quickly to shape the future of this rapidly developing field. An urgently needed resource for assessment developers, researchers, policy makers, special education directors, and students in graduate-level courses in both special education and assessment, this book is a rigorous investigation of the challenges, recent successes, and key components of assessing alternate achievement standards. Readers will start with the foundational knowledge they need for effective development and implementation.
