South Carolina Alternate Assessment (SC-Alt)


The SC-Alt is an alternate assessment for students with significant cognitive disabilities who are assessed against alternate achievement standards as they are unable to participate in the general PACT or HSAP assessment program even with accommodations and/or modifications.

It is administered to students who meet the participation guidelines for alternate assessment and who are ages 8-13 & 15 as of September 1 of the assessment year. (These are typically the ages of students in grades 3-8 & 10).

The assessment consists of a series of performance tasks that are linked to the grade level academic standards although at a less complex level. Each task is aligned to an assessment standard and measurement guideline linked to the grade level content.
