ND Alternate Assessment


North Dakota Alternate Assessment (NDAA) is an instructionally embedded assessment system that is computer-based and serves a small proportion of the student population with significant cognitive disabilities for whom general state assessments are not appropriate. The purpose of the instructionally embedded system is so that teachers can provide targeted, individualized instruction to students with significant cognitive disabilities to help them achieve educational goals.
