The South Carolina Alternate Assessment (SC-Alt) is a state assessment designed for students with significant cognitive disabilities who participate in a school curriculum that includes functional and life skills as well as academic instruction.
The SC-Alt consists of a series of performance tasks in each subject area that allow students to respond in a variety of ways, such as pointing and eye gazing to the correct response, selecting objects or pictures or picture symbols that represent the correct answer, or reading letters, words, or sentences to complete a task. The tasks are linked to the state academic content standards in four areas, English Language Arts (ELA), mathematics, science, and social studies.
