New Florida tests to assess children with most severe disabilities

Some 22,000 Florida students with severe mental impairments will for the first time this March take their own version of Florida standardized tests, the new Florida Alternate Assessment, at the behest of the U.S. Education Department. Their scores are expected to count toward school grades beginning in the 2009-10 school year. Sun-Sentinel (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)
