I have eleven students whom I will need to give our state's alternative assessment. To say that I feel the busy work required of the teacher is overwhelming does not even come close to describing the extent the stress it is causing. I am not happy about it at all.
As I understand it, the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) mandates that all states provide an alternative assessment when implementing statewide accountability systems.
There must be a better way to assess students who are exempt from state testing. I wonder if all states have uniform requirements or if each state designs their own form of teacher tortue.
In my opinion, it would make more sense to use the IEP as intended. All this extra stuff is madness.
