NCEO Framework for Educational Accountability: Post-School Outcomes.
Ysseldyke, Jim; Krentz, Jane; Elliott, Judy; Thurlow, Martha; Thompson, Sandra; Moore, Michael
The National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO) has developed a framework for educational accountability that specifies outcomes and indicators for six developmental levels (ages three and six, grades four, eight, and twelve, and post-school). The framework is designed to be used for the development or revision of district and states assessment and accountability systems. The framework can also be used to design alternate assessment systems and guide the Individualized Educational Program planning process for students with disabilities, ensuring that individual goals are comprehensive and aligned with state and/or district standards. This document focuses on outcomes and indicators for the post-school individual. Checklists are provided for the following domains: (1) academic and functional literacy; (2) physical health; (3) responsibility and independence; (4) citizenship; (5) personal and social well-being; (6) satisfaction; (7) participation; (8) family involvement; and (9) accommodation. It also examines the relationship between the NCEO framework and the SCANS Skills and Competencies, and the NCEO framework compared to transition components required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Appendices include the SCANS Skill and Competencies and describe the domains, indicators, and source of information that can be adopted or adapted for use in system-wide or individual accountability.
