Thurlow, Martha L.; Wiley, Hilda Ives
National Center on Educational Outcomes, University of Minnesota
This report is the sixth analysis of state reports conducted by the National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO) to examine the extent to which states publicly report information about students with disabilities in statewide assessments. Descriptions of statewide testing systems are presented and examined as to whether these systems included participation and performance information for students with disabilities, as indicated by publicly available data. The majority of the information was obtained by analyzing states' Department of Education Web sites. If disaggregated information was not posted, the states were then asked to submit public documents that included these results. The following are appended: (1) Verification Letter to State Assessment Director; (2) Letters to State Directors of Special Education; (3) 2001-2002 State Assessment Systems and Status of Disaggregated Data; (4) Disaggregated Participation Information; (5) Participation Rate Analyses; (6) Alternate Assessment Participation Information; (7) Participation and Performance for Accommodations; (8) Web-based Reporting; and (9) Performance Data for Reading and Math Assessments. (Contains 18 figures and 1 table. Individual appendices contain additional tables.)
