The Vermont Science Assessment (VTSA) Accessibility Guide (AC) is intended for school-level personnel and decision-making teams, particularly IEP teams, as they prepare for and implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) assessments. The AC provides information for classroom teachers, English development educators, special education teachers, and related services personnel to use in selecting and administering universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations for those students who need them. The AC is also intended for assessment staff and administrators who oversee the decisions that are made in instruction and assessment.
