The National Center and State Collaborative (“NCSC”) General Supervision Enhancement Grant (“GSEG”) Project is pleased to announce that CTB/McGraw-Hill has been awarded a contract to provide a comprehensive technology system to support the summative assessment for students with significant cognitive disabilities as described in RFP #2013-03-01 and related amendments. CTB/ McGraw-Hill will work with the NCSC project to provide an open source assessment technology solution. CTB/McGraw-Hill has extensive experience in educational assessment and technology, including building and managing alternate assessments for many state programs.
The NCSC GSEG project is led by five (5) national centers and twenty-six (26) states (fifteen core and eleven tier II states), to build an alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards (AA-AAS) for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school at grade 11. The goal of the NCSC GSEG project is to ensure that students with the most significant cognitive disabilities achieve increasingly higher academic outcomes and leave high school ready for post-secondary options.
