Storyboard Description

Are Alternate Assessments Adequate or Necessary?

Storyboard Text

  • Martha
  • Good decisions about which assessments a student should participate in affects the validity of the results. If a student is assigned an inappropriate assessment, it may decrease their opportunities to learn. 
  • Rachel
  • Alternative assessments have become a measure of teacher accountability rather than student accountability. And time administering these assessments takes value time away from instruction.

  • Teachers aren't seeing that alternative assessments accurately evaluate a student's knowledge but merely measure their ability to complete a task.
  • Having clear criteria for students with disabilities will help, but strong implementation must happen also. Leaders should ensure that educators understand the importance of their participation decisions.

  • I have not given an alternate assessment myself, but I have spoken with coworker that feel like they are a waste of time for certain students. If we really want to measure student growth, we should be able to assess students at their current academic level and not in connection with grade level.

  • The role of school leaders is to show teachers the necessity for assessments and monitor the decisions made concerning assessments in the IEP.
