Description
 
Presented by Jennifer Mauskapf, Esq.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) imposes a new 1 percent statewide cap on the number of students who can take the alternate assessment. Find out the impact on the testing of students with disabilities, as attorney Jennifer Mauskapf explains ESSA’s new assessment requirements and provides guidance on how to balance them with IDEA compliance.

Get everyone on your staff prepared to address potential conflicts between the two laws with expert insights on:

  • Reconciling new ESSA requirements with IEP teams’ responsibility to determine each student’s needs related to academic assessment
  • Ensuring only students with the most significant cognitive abilities are administered the alternate assessment
  • The requirement that all children with disabilities be provided appropriate accommodations necessary to measure academic achievement relative to the challenging state academic standards or alternate academic achievement standards
  • Properly distinguishing between testing accommodations and modifications, with real-world examples
  • The option ESSA gives to states to use adaptive assessments
  • And more!
