Kentucky Alternate Portfolio

  • Compton, Jonathan (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


The Statewide Alternate Assessment program has three (3) components: portfolios (collection of student work), attainment tasks (performance events) and transition attainment record (skill checklists). The componenets fulfill federal requirements found in the No Child Left Behind Act and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act as well as Kentucky state law. The work of the vendor ensures that students with significant challenges will be represented in Kentucky's assessment and accountability system and included in federal reporting. The alternate assessment program provides multiple ways for the Individual Education Plan (IEP) team (including general and special education teachers, families and students) to measure student performance, encourage student choice and decision-making, merge instructional and assessment activities and build support for meaningful participation in appropriate general education curriculum. All activities in the statement of work will be developed collaboratively between the Kentucky Department of Education and the University of Kentucky. The statement of work will include the following categories: 1.0 Assistance with Data (2009-2010 and 2010-2011) production/reporting, analysis and research 2.0 Training and System Support for 2010-2011 school/district requirements 3.0 Development of Assessments 4.0 Test Administration 5.0 Scoring and Reporting
