Starting with the 2013-14 administration, the New York State Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) measures the Common Core Learning Standards in English language artsĀ (ELA) and Mathematics, and NYS Learning Standards in Science and Social Studies. These standards are measured through a datafolio style assessment with less depth, breadth, and complexity than the regular assessment administered to all students.

The Office of State Assessment has provided sample tasks in ELA and mathematics that demonstrate how student work can be designed to assess an Extension. More information can be found at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/assessment/nysaa/

Questions can be directed to that Office at emscassessinfo@mail.nysed.gov.

Please share as appropriate. Thank you.
