To guide and support individualized education program (IEP) teams in determining whether a student is most appropriately assessed with an alternate assessment, the Ohio Department of Education, in consultation with parents, teachers, administrators and other stakeholders, developed an Alternate Assessment Participation Decision-Making Tool. The Department received many questions and comments about the decision-making tool from stakeholders during this process. This supplement to the decision-making tool was created to address those questions and concerns.

Ohio’s Learning Standards – Extended (OLS-E) also are commonly known as "the extended standards." These standards help to ensure that students with significant cognitive disabilities are provided with multiple ways to learn and demonstrate knowledge. At the same time, the extended standards are designed to maintain the rigor and high expectations of Ohio’s Learning Standards.  (Images shown below refer only to the extended standards for Science.  Extended standards also exist for ELA, Math and Social Studies) -Ohio Department of Education 
 
 
 
A learning Progression is a sequence of skills linked to a learning target that build base skills and engagement as learners make progress toward mastery of the standard or learning target.  These Learning Progressions are a companion to the OLS-E and help develop teacher and learner clarity about embedded skills within each standard.   (Images shown below refer only to the extended standards with learning progressions for Science.  The same format also exist for ELA, Math and Social Studies)   -OCALI
