CCSS students participate in Alternate Maryland School Assessment (Alt-MSA), the alternate assessment for students with disabilities. Following the guidelines of the State Curriculum science skills are assessed based on daily individual instruction. A team of educators selects objectives based on the individual needs of each student. Students then complete a portfolio assessment that reflects student success with each objective. Students with disabilities in grades 5, 8 and 10 must participate in either Science MSA or Science Alt-MSA. The decision for which assessment is appropriate for an individual student is made by each student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) team.
