Title: Tentative Plans for GAA training Nov. 3


1
WHAT IS GAA?
Georgia Alternate Assessment
2
PURPOSE
  • Ensure students with significant cognitive
    disabilities are provided the opportunity to
    access a challenging curriculum
  • Document student involvement in activities
    aligned to the general education curriculum
  • Demonstrate student progress towards achieving
    the curriculum standards

3
Overview of the GAA
  • The GAA is a portfolio of student work provided
    as evidence that a student is making progress
    toward grade-level academic standards, often at a
    pre-requisite or entry level.
  • Evidence provided must show student work that is
  • aligned to specific grade-level standards,
  • adapted to meet the students cognitive,
    communication, physical and/or sensory
    impairments.
  • The Georgia alternate Assessment meets NCLB and
    IDEA mandates.

4
We do not teach GAA GAA should be evidence of
good instruction.
GAA evidence is not an isolated event.

What is evidence?
19
Entry Evidence
  • Entry
  • An entry for a content area consists of an Entry
    Sheet followed by pieces of evidence that show
    the students skill related to the
    standard/element indicated on the Entry Sheet.
  • Entry Sheet
  • An Entry Sheet is a 2-page document that must be
    completed and placed in front of the evidence for
    that entry.
  • It serves as a table of contents for the entry.
  • Evidence
  • Student work samples, series of captioned
    photographs, etc., that show or describe the
    students performance on instructional tasks
    related to the selected standard/element.

20
Types of Evidence
  • Primary Evidence
  • Demonstrates knowledge/skills by showing the
    students engagement in instructional tasks
  • Secondary Evidence
  • Reports knowledge/skills by documenting,
    charting, or interpreting the students
    performance

21
Types of Evidence
  • Primary Evidence (shows what the student knows)
  • Series of captioned photographs (2 or more)
  • Permanent product
  • Videotape audiotape (with script)
  • Work sample

22
Types of Evidence
  • Secondary Evidence (reports what the student
    knows)
  • Data sheet (Charts/Graphs)
  • Interview
  • Observation (Anecdotal record)
  • An additional piece of Primary Evidence

23
Progress is Essential
  • Evidence can show progress in a variety of ways
  • an increase in accuracy
  • (2) an increase in the complexity of
    instructional tasks and/or
  • (3) an increase in independence through a
    decrease in the type and frequency of prompting.

24
PROGRESS
25
What is generalization?
  • Generalization assesses the students opportunity
    to apply the learned skill in other settings
    and/or with various individuals in addition to
    the teacher or paraprofessional.
  • In what meaningful settings is the student
    performing the activities? (The setting should be
    purposeful for the instructional task.)
  • With whom and in what way is the student
    interacting during the standard-based
    instructionalactivity?

26
GENERALIZATION
27
Documenting Evidence
  • Use the same nouns verbs that are in the
    standard and element in writing annotations and
    task descriptions
  • USE THE CHECKLISTS
