The National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) Alternate Assessment
In SY 2014-2015, the National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) will replace DC CAS-Alt in Math and ELA/Literacy.
The National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) Alternate Assessment is an assessment based on alternate achievement standards (AA-AAS), and addresses curriculum, instruction, and assessment needs of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. It allows TT students to demonstrate their performance towards achieving the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) at reduced depth, breadth, and complexity. The NCSC will test in grades 3-8 and 11 in reading, writing, and math.
NCSC assessment is a computer based assessment and will be administered within 6 weeks in the Spring.
