the U.S. Dept. of Education has approved a waiver request to exceed the 1% cap on alternate assessments for the state of Oklahoma. This brings the total of states with approved waivers to 23.
States with waivers have consideration activities to undertake as a condition of receiving a waiver. These are spelled out in the ESSA assessment regulations available at https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2016-12-08/pdf/2016-29128.pdf. ALL states should familiarize themselves with the federal regulations as they contain important provisions that apply to all states.
