AAC in the Classroom for Students with Significant Disabilities: 
Implementation and Data \Collection on Low Tech AAC and Apps
During the second session in this AAC implementation series, Kelly 

will teach two processes of data collection to go along with the types 
of classroom based communication activities that are often chosen for 
students with significant disabilities, especially those that were introduced 
during the first session. If you were not able to join us live for Session 1, 
you are encouraged to go back to AbleNet University and preview the
first session prior to this session. Simple charting is critical if data is to be
collected live during a busy activity. Video is often used to catch subtlety
 of movement, eye gaze and other non-traditional communication attempts 
for more complex charting. Data collection techniques will look at 
measurement of student progress as well as staff implementation of 
strategies. Participants will be encouraged to start collecting data on 
an activity so that Session 3 analysis techniques will be immediately

Free Webinar: Learn to Develop Rich Assessment Tasks with Jay McTighe
In this webinar, we’ll explore a set of practical and proven design tools for
developing quality performance tasks based on Jay McTighe’s new LumiBook, 
Core Learning: Assessing What Matters Most. Such tasks provide more than
simply another method for measuring learning—they embody the most
important goals of the Standards, while engaging students in meaningful learning.

The Common Core and Next Generation Standards call for students to apply their
learning in authentic ways—e.g., to “closely” read complex texts, develop and
critique arguments, solve “messy” problems requiring sound reasoning and
perseverance, and engage in scientific inquiry.

These goals demand concomitant assessments that call for more than making
a selection from given answers in a selected-response format. Richer, more
authentic tasks are needed.
