Ohio's Alternate Assessment for Students
with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD)

Ohio’s Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD) will be administered from February 20 – April 14, 2017. The AASCD is aligned to Ohio’s Academic Content Standards–Extended (OACS-E) and designed to allow students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in an appropriately rigorous assessment. The AASCD will be administered by grade band (3-5, 6-8, and high school, which is administered in the 10th grade). All students will be assessed in English language arts and mathematics.
