GSEG grant for Alternate Assessment Validity Evaluation Project

edCount served as a validity evaluation partner for a three-year General Supervision Enhancement Grant (GSEG) in collaboration with five state education agencies (Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico). In their role, edCount identified and evaluated the validity arguments that guide the interpretation and use of scores for each entity’s alternate assessment. 

edCount also served as the validity evaluation partner to both Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia as part of the AA-AAS Validity Evaluation project, helping each state level partner develop an argument for the validity of the alternate assessment they administer to students with significant cognitive disabilities. edCount then worked with each partner to develop validity evaluation plans comprising three studies to test or evaluate claims within these arguments, and carried out studies for each partner according to this plan.
