AASCD Participation Decision-Making Tool and FAQ

This required document is to be used to guide and support individualized education program (IEP) teams in determining whether a student is most appropriately assessed with an alternate assessment, by clarifying and setting specific criteria that students must meet for each criteria in the framework. This new tool does not replace the existing alternate assessment decision-making framework. IEP teams must use the tool each time the team is considering participation in the alternate assessment.

The Decision-Making Tool Frequently Asked Questions document was created as a supplement to the decision-making tool to address questions and concerns.
