NCSC Question/Answer of the Week

Q: How will my state’s participation in the NCSC project affect the way that my district serves and assesses students with the most significant cognitive disabilities?

A: Your district will have access to all of the curricular, instructional support, and professional development materials developed through the NCSC for teachers of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. The alternate assessment will be based on the best research available about how these students build competence in academics and how to prepare them for life after high school. The NCSC will also design systems to ease the burden of administering the alternate assessment.
