Setting Achievement Standards on Assessments for Students with Disabilities

Marianne Perie, Martha Thurlow

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The first version of this book was published in 2001-about the time our understanding of and inclusion of students with disabilities in assessment began to change dramatically. In the past 10 years, we have learned much about how students with disabilities demonstrate their knowledge and skills, and laws have changed to ensure their inclusion in state accountability systems. With the understanding of better testing practices, came improvements in setting rigorous yet feasible academic achievement standards for students with more severe disabilities.
