A 2008 report updating the National Center on Educational Outcomes' (NCEO) report from 2006 that tracked and analyzed state policies on assessment participation and accommodations since 1992. The purpose of the current analysis is to update information on these policies that was last reported by NCEO in 2006 (based on 2005 data). In this analysis, policies from all 50 states, plus 8 of the unique states, were reviewed. The current analysis of states' 2007 participation and accommodation policies found that state policies on participation and accommodation continue to evolve, and that they have become more detailed and specific than in previous years.
The Center is supported through a Cooperative Agreement (#H326G050007)
with the Research to Practice Division, Office of Special Education
Programs, U.S. Department of Education. Additional support for targeted
projects, including those on English language learners, is provided by
other federal and state agencies. Opinions expressed herein do
