Alternate Assessment Information

Ohio’s Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant

Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD) – 2015-2016

Training on how to administer the AASCD will be provided on three dates. You need to register in STARS for only one of the training dates as each session will provide the same information. Please don’t register for more than one date.

If you are an individual who has never given the Alternate Assessment, then you are required by OEC to attend an entire day of training. If you will serve as a second rater of the test and have never received this training, then you are also to attend an all day training.

If you have previously been trained, then you have three options concerning this training. First, you are welcome to attend an all day training. Second, you may attend for only the afternoon of training (12:30-2:30) where changes to the test will be presented. Third, you can just click the link provided (Changes to Ohio’s AASCD for 2015-2016) which identifies the changes for this school year. You may decide that you will not attend any additional training session. All individuals who will administer the Alternate Assessment or will be a second rater must download the “Spring 2016 AASCD Directions for Administration Manual.” This document and all other information related to this testing can be found at: http://oh.portal.airast.org.

The three training sessions are: (Register for only one date in STARS.)

- Tuesday, January 12, 2016; Scioto County CTC, Taylor Bldg. meeting room

- Wednesday, January 13, 2016; Ross-Pike ESD, conference room A

- Thursday, January 28, 2016; South Point Local Board of Education

The all day training schedule will be as follows.

8:00 to 8:30 Sign-in time

8:30 to 11:00 Morning Training

11:00 to 12:30 Lunch on your own

12:30 to 2:30 Afternoon Training

Whether you plan to attend for all day or only the afternoon training times, you must register in STARS. If you have any difficulty in locating these trainings in STARS, then search for them by the “date” you wish to register to attend. If you are not able to register for some reason, then call Mandy Thomas of this SST at 1 740 289-4171 extension 2 or Jill Spradlin at extension 64209. We will use your email address in STARS to notify you if there is a weather reason to cancel and reschuled a training. Thus, be sure to have the correct information in your STARS profile. A wrong address means no notification.
