Alternate Assessment Family Resources

These Frequently Asked Questions resources were developed to describe the Alternate Assessment for Students with the Most Significant Cognitive Disabilities. The first resource addresses the format for the online alternate assessment. The second resource addresses eligibility and participation in the alternate assessment. The third resource addresses Ohio’s Learning Standards-Extended and instruction for students who participate in the alternate assessment.


Ohio’s Learning Standards – Extended (OLS-E) also are commonly known as "the extended standards." These standards help to ensure that students with significant cognitive disabilities are provided with multiple ways to learn and demonstrate knowledge. At the same time, the extended standards are designed to maintain the rigor and high expectations of Ohio’s Learning Standards.
