Ask. What types of assessments are offered in my state? • What types of responses do different state assessments require? • What are the administrative conditions of the assessment? (i.e., setting, delivery of instructions, time allotted, etc.) • What accommodations are allowed on the assessment(s)? • Are the accommodations approved for the assessment also used in the classroom? • Has the student received standards-based, grade-level instruction? • Was the instruction evidence based? • What is the student’s instructional level? • How different is the student’s instructional level from the level of typical peers? • Can the student make progress toward grade-level standards in the same timeframe as typical peers? (If no, consider modified academic achievement standards) • What can be learned from the student’s previous state assessment results? • Can the student demonstrate what he/she knows on the assessment option under consideration? APPLICATION OF THE STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS In this section, two students with distinct characteristics are introduced. One student’s educational characteristics will prove to be appropriate for an assessment based on modified academic achievement standards and one will not. In working through these steps in developing standards-based IEPs you might want to see how they are applied to both of these student examples and then apply them to students with whom you work. The two students, Xxxxxxx and Xxxx, and the content standards and subsequent IEP goals are for illustration only. Many students will have three to four reading and/or math goals. We provide only two goals for each student to illustrate the process of developing a standards-based IEP. Xxxxxxx has goals in reading and behavior; and Xxxx has goals in reading and math. The appendix contains both exemplar students’ full IEPs. Applying Steps 1 and 2 for Xxxxxxx (Consider the grade-level content standards and examine classroom and student data.) Steps 1 and 2 constitute the initial planning for the IEP. After completing the first two steps, the IEP team will have information that can be synthesized into a description of the student. Some states include student profiles as part of the IEP document, but such descriptions are not a requirement under IDEA. It is necessary, however, for the IEP team to develop a picture of grade-level expectations and know where each student is functioning in relation to those expectations. Xxxxxxx Grade 4 The IEP team, including Xxxxxxx’s mother, spe...
