Alternate Assessment and Standards Based Instruction

December 17, 2015

This Third Thursday information session will focus on Standards Based Education and what it means for learners who take the Alternate Assessment. What are the Ohio Academic Content Standards--Extended? Why were they developed? Do students with significant cognitive challenges have access to a meaningful education that is guided by the standards developed for their typical peers?

This session will show that the answer to the question is a resounding YES! Ohio has developed resources for teachers that will give all students access to the general curriculum. Learn what parents of these students should expect from their child’s daily learning experience and how they can be involved. Parents will learn about the Extended Standards, and the Alternate Assessment and what it means for your child.
