Special Education Assessments

Idaho believes in high standards for all students, including students with disabilities. The overwhelming majority of students with disabilities can take the general assessment with the appropriate accommodations. For students with the most significant, cognitive disabilities for whom the general assessment is not appropriate, the administration of the Alternate Assessment based on Alternate Achievement Standards (AA-AAS) may be appropriate with accommodations.

The Special Education and Assessment departments collaborate to inform schools and parents on the educational trends related to standards-based instruction, classroom assessments materials, and accessibility options.
