Children with disabilities are now included in state academic assessments under the No Child Left Behind Act, as well as other state and local assessment systems that are used for accountability purposes. This program addresses questions related to how assessments, measures of progress, assessment standards, and accountability provisions should be designed to capture and represent growth in high priority skills among children with disabilities. The overall goal of this program is the design and implementation of assessment systems that are valid and that provide information that can be used to promote the highest levels of achievement for all children.
