The main focus of this study was to demonstrate that the New York State Alternate Assessment is not a useful tool for instructional planning. The current study suggested that in all cases, it is not. As mentioned prior, the purpose of implementing an assessment is to use the results to improve teaching practices. The current study has suggested that the alternate assessment used by New York State is not fulfilling its purpose.
