The Kentucky Alternate Assessment  was developed in 1990 as a result of the Reform Act of 1990 to provide schools and programs with a valid and reliable means of assessing the instruction provided to students with moderate and significant disabilities (i.e., for the less than 1% of the total student population for whom traditional assessments would be an inappropriate measure of progress). As the decision to include a student for participation in Alternate Assessment must be made by knowledgeable individuals through an Admissions and Release Committee (ARC ) process, training of those individuals is critical.  For a quick glance of trainings required for specific individuals involved in the process from determining participation to assessing students on Alternate Assessment, click HERE.  

For questions and support with Alternate Assessment in your district, contact the Low Incidence Disabilities consultant for your Special Education Cooperative.
