Inclusion of Students with Disabilities in State and District Assessments.
Thurlow, Martha L.; Thompson, Sandra J.
The inclusion of students with disabilities in state and district assessments rests on a fundamental belief: all children can learn. This belief centers on all children who receive educational services, even those whose teachers and therapists work with them at home or in the hospital. The purpose of this chapter is to clarify the rationale for holding schools accountable for the progress of every student toward challenging educational standards and to describe the assessment options for measuring this progress through state and district assessment systems.
