Students With Disabilities Improve Test Performance
The percentage of students with disabilities who are achieving proficiency on state accountability tests increased in 42 states between the 2002-03 and 2004-05 school years, concludes a survey of state directors of special education.
Released by the Minneapolis-based National Center on Educational Outcomes, the survey also found that most states now have enough data to attribute increased proficiency to specific efforts by schools and districts. Those efforts include better access to standards-based instruction for students with disabilities, better alignment of individualized education programs with standards, and clearly communicated test-participation policies.
