Available Resources for the Individualized Education Program Teams That Support Student Participation in Statewide Testing

The following resources will assist individualized education program (IEP) teams in making informed decisions about student participation in statewide testing, including the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC). They offer information about the assignment of accessibility resources that will allow students to demonstrate what they know and are able to do during classroom instruction and on the assessments.

Identifying the Correct Assessment for Students

The first consideration for an IEP team is to evaluate which assessment is most appropriate for the student on the basis of the student’s individual learning needs.

Identifying Appropriate Accessibility Resources for Students

After the IEP team has made a decision on the appropriate assessment for each student, the next consideration involves the selection of appropriate accessibility resources on the basis of each individual student’s needs.
