Sato, Edynn; Worth, Peter; Gallagher, Carole; Lagunoff, Rachel; McKeag, Holly
Assessment and Accountability Comprehensive Center
These guidelines, prepared by the Special Populations Strand of the Assessment and Accountability Comprehensive Center (AACC), focus on the technical quality of assessments for English language learners (ELLs) and students with disabilities (SWDs). This document is an evolving document that will periodically be updated to incorporate new information. This document is intended to provide information to Regional Comprehensive Centers (RCCs) and states as they work to comply with the regulations of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) affecting their special student populations (i.e., SWDs, ELLs). These guidelines also are intended to help RCCs and states: (1) gauge where a state is with regard to meeting federal requirements relevant to the assessment and accountability of special student populations; (2) focus attention on priority issues related to implementing practices and systems that are in compliance with federal regulations; and (3) select implementation strategies that have evidence of effectiveness, given the particular needs and conditions of the state. A list of resources is included. (Contains 17 tables and 5 footnotes.)
