March 19, 2010
Bismarck, ND – The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction announces the adoption of state academic achievement standards for the North Dakota Alternate Assessment-2 (NDAA2) in reading, mathematics, and science. Dr. Wayne G. Sanstead, State Superintendent, approved the adoption of the state achievement standards for the NDAA2 following a process that sought the input of statewide special education and content specialists. These state achievement standards for the NDAA2 become the basis for the scoring of student performance in reading, mathematics, and science on the 2009-10 NDAA2. The NDAA2 measures student achievement in terms of the state’s content and modified achievement standards for students with persistent learning difficulties.
