Reporting for AA-AAS

Federal and public reporting of educational results for assessments of academic content helps ensure that public schools are accountable for working with students to meet higher educational standards. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) require states to disaggregate participation and performance data for students with disabilities who participate in the AA-AAS.

For purposes of accountability, states make policy decisions about how to combine results from AA-AAS with the general assessment results. Most states combine scores by proficiency level on each assessment, indicating that a proficient performance on the AA-AAS counts just as much as a proficient performance on the general assessment.

Disaggregation of performance for ELs with disabilities on the AA-AAS is not required by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Nevertheless, disaggregation is considered appropriate where group sizes are large enough.
