Distribution of NYSAA Student Learning Profiles

New York State Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) Student Learning Profile Report 

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is pleased to announce the release of Student Learning Profile Reports for students who participated in the Spring 2018 NYSAA in English Language Arts (ELA), mathematics and science. The NYSAA measures student knowledge of the Essential Elements in the areas of ELA, mathematics and science. The Essential Elements are alternate achievement standards that are reduced in depth, breadth, and complexity from the learning standards and have been adopted by New York State for our students with the most severe cognitive disabilities.

The Student Learning Profile describes the skills, as they relate to each Essential Element, that were included in the assessment and how the student’s mastery of these skills compares to alternate achievement grade-level expectations. It provides one piece of evidence to help inform instruction of NYSAA students and helps to build a bridge between the alternate achievement standards, the State assessment and instruction.

 It is expected that the Student Learning Profiles will be distributed electronically the week of September 24, 2018.  Additional information on distribution is available at cbtsupport.nysed.gov under the NYSAA\Announcements section.  Questions regarding the Student Learning Profile Report may be directed to the Office of State Assessment, at 518-474-5902 or emscassessinfo@nysed.gov.
