Assessment System for Special Education Students Exempted from the Texas Assessment Program. A Report Submitted to the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Speaker of the House, and the 75th Texas Legislature.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
The Texas Education Code requires the Commissioner of Education to develop and propose a system for evaluating the progress of students eligible for exemption from the statewide assessment program under current law. This report summarizes the proposed system for special education students. It includes proposed changes to the assessment and accountability systems using the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS) and an alternative state-developed or commercially available system. How students receiving special education services will participate in the assessment program will be specified in each Individual Education Plan. The TAAS will be used when students receive instruction on grade level in the subject being tested. A list of allowable test modifications will be developed and disseminated. Other requirements are specified, and time lines are established for assessment implementation. (SLD)
