The Assessing Special Education Students (ASES) State Collaborative on Assessment and Student Standards (SCASS) supports states as they enhance their 21st century assessment, accountability, and curriculum and instruction systems to provide full equity for students with disabilities. As the only national consortium of assessment and special education professionals, ASES addresses the inclusion of students with disabilities in standards, policy development and implementation, curriculum, instruction, assessment, and accountability systems, and the effects of these systems on education reform efforts. Members have a deep commitment to addressing the unique issues facing students with disabilities participating in general assessments as well as those participating in alternate assessments linked to alternate achievement standards.
