SCS/SB 1246 - This act provides that the state board of education shall identify or establish developmentally appropriate alternate assessments to the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) tests for special education students. In developing such alternate assessments, the state board shall establish an advisory panel to develop and recommend alternate assessments for adoption by the board. The advisory panel shall consist of a majority of active special education professionals and other appropriate education professionals.
Any special education student shall be assessed by such alternate assessment upon a determination by the student's individual education program team that an alternate assessment is better suited than the standard MAP test to assess the student's knowledge, skills and competencies.
