Summary

This report addresses challenges associated with the reporting of test scores of students with disabilities participating in alternate assessments. It summarizes six models currently under construction or already being used by states. Using proficiency levels as a common reporting approach, the six models are: (1) same proficiency levels for general assessment and alternate assessment; (2) different proficiency levels for general and alternate assessments but treated as the same; (3) different proficiency levels for general assessment and alternate assessment; (4) overlapped proficiency levels for general assessment and alternate assessment; (5) lowest possible proficiency level for alternate assessment; and (6) no alternate assessment proficiency levels. The pros and cons of each of the six models are addressed, along with the implications of using each model. The importance of collecting data on these models as they are implemented is stressed.
