Inclusive Assessment Practices



Differentiated assessment supports are design practices that offer students choice in the way they express, represent or engage with their learning.  They affect eh WHY of learning (engagement), recognize the WHAT of learning (representation) and support the HOW of learning (action and expression).


All students are eligible to receive universal assessment supports to support their learning – not just students with disabilities and diverse abilities, or those with an Individual Education Plan (IEP)


Some students may require more targeted assessment supports –again not just students with an IEP.  It is important to note that targeted assessment supports include the use of universal supports as well.


Few students will require specific assessment supports to support their learning.  Typically, these include students with complex needs who have moderate or profound intellectual disabilities.
