Ohio’s Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD)
Ohio’s Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD) is aligned to Ohio’s Academic Content Standards–Extended (OACS-E) and designed to allow students with significant cognitive disabilities to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in an appropriately rigorous assessment. The AASCD will be administered by grade band (3-5, 6-8, OGT). All students will be assessed in English language arts and mathematics. Students in grades 5 and 8 will also be assessed in science. Students in grades 4 and 6 will also be assessed in social studies. Students taking the OGT-AASCD will also be assessed in science and social studies.
