2015-16 DLMTM 11th Grade Alternate Assessment replaces 11th Grade Alternate for the Colorado ACT

Note: The 11th Grade Alternate Assessment for the Colorado ACT will no longer be administered through the Exceptional Student Services Unit and housed in the Data Pipeline snapshot collection.  However, feedback from the field recognizes the potential value of information gained from the 11th Grade Alternate for transition planning.  Therefore, the 11th Grade Alternate Assessment for the Colorado ACT has been released and is posted below.
