Special education law mandates that alternate assessments for students with moderate to severe disabilities be aligned to the appropriate grade level core content standards.
The updated second edition of Aligning IEPs to the Common Core State Standards For Students with Moderate and Severe Disabilities offers an easy-to-follow framework for aligning students’ IEPs and assessments in order to meet both state core content standards and the assessment requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.
