Tool Kit on Teaching and Assessing Students With Disabilities (U.S.Department of Education)
The U.S. Department of Education has developed a Tool Kit on Teaching and Assessing Students with Disabilities (Tool Kit), which offers a compilation of information that will move states forward in improving results for all students with disabilities.
The Tool Kit includes information about the Department’s investments, papers on large-scale assessment, technical assistance (TA) products, and resources. The section on large-scale assessment includes a collection of seven papers and a glossary that address key issues related to the participation of students with disabilities in these standards-based assessments. The TA products are divided into four substantive areas: Assessment, Instructional Practices, Behavior, and Accommodations.
- Large-Scale Assessment
- Alternate Assessment
- Progress Monitoring
- Response to Intervention (RTI)
- Instructional Practices
- K–3 Literacy
- Social Interaction and Communication
- Adolescent Literacy
- Schoolwide Behavioral Interventions
- Instructional and Assessment Accommodations
For each area, users will find a description of each resource, including its citation and target audience.
