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 professional services for the development and administration of summative assessments in English Language Arts and mathematics.   CTB/ McGraw-Hill  will work with the NCSC project to support a variety of key development services to include pilot and field testing, standard setting, and reporting.  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 eighteen (18) states, plus nine (9) affiliated 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.  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.
