This report discusses findings from a study that examined the inclusiveness of state standards for students with disabilities. Specifically, the study investigated the extent to which individuals who know students with disabilities were involved in the development process, the extent to which students with disabilities were identified as being a target group of students for the standards, and the extent to which the standards represent broad domains of learning. These analyses revealed that while most states indicate that their standards are for "all" students, only 13 states specifically state that "all" includes students with disabilities. Furthermore, rarely were individuals knowledgeable about students with disabilities involved in the development of standards. Only eight states indicated specifically that these individuals were included in standards development. Finally, state standards covered many areas beyond academics; however, states almost exclusively focused their assessments on academics. Recommendations are presented and include: (1) standards should apply to all students, including those with disabilities and standards documents should clearly state that this is so; (2) accommodations should be provided to allow students who need them to reach standards; and (3) special educators should be involved in standards development. Appendices include relevant data charts. (Contains 18 references.) (Author/CR)
