Guidance for Examining Disproportionality of Student Group Participation in Alternate Assessments

Publication Date: 2019-08-01


The purpose of this brief is to examine disproportionality with respect to student group participation in Alternate Assessments aligned with Alternate Academic Achievement Standards (AA-AAAS). This paper is a companion to another National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO) brief, Guidance for Examining District Alternate Assessment Participation Rates (Evans & Domaleski, 2018). The companion brief outlined a broad framework and general principles to guide the examination of AA-AAAS participation rates, particularly in light of the challenge of small n-sizes and associated uncertainty.
