2013-14 NYSAA Sample Evidence Sets

Starting with the 2013-14 administration, the New York State Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) measures the Common Core Learning Standards in English language arts (ELA) and Mathematics, and NYS Learning Standards in Science and Social Studies. These standards are measured through a datafolio style assessment with less depth, breadth, and complexity than the regular assessment administered to all students.

Below are links to sample evidence sets in ELA and mathematics that demonstrate how student work can be designed to assess an Extension. These tasks are intended as samples to be used to assess the most challenged of all students with disabilities assessed on the NYSAA, but are not required.
