Steady Progress: State Public Reporting Practices for Students with Disabilities after the First Year of NCLB (2002-2003) - This report presents descriptions of statewide testing systems and examines whether these systems included participation and performance information for students with disabilities, as indicated by publicly available data. The report finds that more states are reporting on the participation and performance of students with disabilities for their general and alternative assessments than ever before, and presents recommendations to further improve reporting practices: (1) report not only the number of students with disabilities assessed, but also the percentage assessed; (2) report results for the alternative assessment; and (3) report the number and percent of students with disabilities using accommodations. (Hilda Ives Wiley, Martha L. Thurlow and Jean A. Klein, National Center for Education Statistics, May 2005)...
