ECC Assessments

Description and Rationale:

IDEA 2004 (300.305 (iii) requires that the present level of performance in both academic achievement and functional performance be addressed on IEPs. Once the priority areas have been identified by the ECC Needs Assessment tool collaborative assessments are completed by the TVI, COMS, and other pertinent educational personnel. Age level or grade level equivalencies are needed to develop measurable goals for planning and instruction. Most states have adopted the common core standards, benchmarks or grade level expectations. Some states require all IEP goal areas to be aligned with these standards, check for your state's guidance on this matter.
