The West Virginia Alternate Performance Task Assessment (APTA) is designed for a small number of students with significant cognitive disabilities who cannot participate in the general assessments, even with accommodations. The decision-making process for participation in APTA is stipulated in West Virginia Board of Education Policy 2340: West Virginia Measures of Academic Progress. APTA is given to all students in grades 3-8 and 11 in mathematics and reading/language arts and in grades 4, 6 and 10 in science, who qualify under the eligibility criteria established in West Virginia Guidelines for Participation in State Assessments.
The documents linked below will provide additional information for students and parents of students who are taking the APTA.
