Researchers also scanned the Web sites of research centers and consortia for relevant publications.
Publications should reflect one of the following:
- Investigation of AA-AAS validity, alignment, administration, and use.
- Teachers', parents', and administrators' knowledge or perceptions of AA-AAS, as well as descriptive studies on AA-AAS administration and use.
- Standards-based content-alignment and academic instruction for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
- Policy and reform related to standards-based instruction and assessment for students with significant cognitive disabilities, including articles on NCLB/ESEA and IDEA as they pertain to students with significant cognitive disabilities.
