Alternate Performance Indicators (APIs): The Development and Examples of APIs for Students with Disabilities.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This document discusses the development and implementation of alternative performance indicators (APIs) to assess the educational progress of children with disabilities in Wisconsin toward model academic content standards. It begins by describing the alternate assessment process, the definition of APIs, and the process of developing APIs. Questions to consider when evaluating the quality of alternate performance indicators and activities are also provided. Charts with sample APIs for each content standard (mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies) for students completing fourth grade are provided, along with examples of the conceptual knowledge and skills associated with standards that are to be demonstrated by students with disabilities. The samples are designed to assist educators in developing Individualized Education Program goals that take into consideration how the goals are consistent with standards set for all students. (CR)
