Visions for the Future:Inclusive Assessments

Jacqueline F. Kearns, Ed.D.

University of Kentucky

a world class inclusive assessment system would
A world class inclusive assessment system would:
  • recognize that students with disabilities including those with significant cognitive disabilities benefit from participation in the general curriculum based on the same goals and standards as their typical peers.
    • Currently, 75% of students with SCD in AA-AAS read sight words and use a calculator for basic mathematical operations.
  • require authentic demonstration of skills and knowledge of all students
    • authentic, contextualized demonstrations are essential for students with disabilities particularly for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
  • include structured processes that ensure all have the opportunity to show what they know.

incorporate training on curriculum and instruction so that assessment on the academic content is not the only time students have access to the content.

allow for formative evidence of instruction on the assessed content , the context of the instruction, as well as summative demonstration of skills and knowledge.

provide summative information for accountability purposes and

formative evidence would provide LEA and SEA with needs assessment data to guide ongoing training and support, and inform teacher training/licensure processes.
