Assessment Policy and Guidelines
AEFLA-funded adult basic education programs must assess students using standardized assessments to report educational gain measures for the National Reporting System (NRS). To ensure the validity and reliability of assessment data, the Colorado Department of Education is required to provide and implement an assessment policy and monitor local adult education providers' assessment practices and results.
The Colorado Assessment Policy for AEFLA Programs is based on State Assessment Policy Guidance issued by the U. S. Dept. of Education's Division of Adult Education and Literacy, test publishers' guidelines and recommendations, and NRS Implementation Guidelines. AEFLA-funded programs are required to establish local implementation of the state assessment policy.
