NCEXTEND1 Eligibility Criteria To determine student participation in the NCEXTEND1, the following eligibility criteria must be met: The NCEXTEND1 Alternate Assessment is designed for students with disabilities who: Have a current IEP; Are enrolled in grades 3–8 or 10 according to the Student Information Management System (e.g., SIMS/NCWISE); Are instructed in the North Carolina Standard Course of Study Extended Content Standards in ALL assessed content areas; and Have a SIGNIFICANT COGNITIVE DISABILITY (i.e., exhibit severe and pervasive delays in ALL areas of conceptual, linguistic and academic development and also in adaptive behavior areas, such as communication, daily living skills and self-care).
NCEXTEND1 Eligibility Criteria (continued) The vast majority of students with disabilities do not have a significant cognitive disability. The NCEXTEND1 is NOT appropriate for students who: are being instructed in ANY OR ALL of the general grade-level content standards of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study; demonstrate delays only in academic achievement; demonstrate delays due primarily to behavioral issues; demonstrate delays only in selected areas of academic achievement; or if in high school, are pursuing a North Carolina high school diploma (including students enrolled in the Occupational Course of Study). The NCEXTEND1 Alternate Assessment is designed for students who have a severe intellectual disability; it is NOT designed for students who have a specific learning disability.
