|School Year||State||File Spec||Data Group||Reporting Level||Data Note||State Note|
|2015-2016||ALASKA||175, 175178179, 178, 185, 188||583, 583584585, 584, 588, 589||LEA, SEA||No data reported at the SEA, LEA, or School levels in SY2015-16.||
Data for these files do not exist due to the cancellation of state assessments.
|2015-2016||INDIANA||185||588||LEA, SEA||Partial data: No FS185 data submitted for the alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards (ALTPARTALTACH) at the SEA, LEA, and School levels.||
The data reported for ISTAR, Indiana’s alternate assessment, reflects the anticipated results from ISTAR for 2015-16 and are consistent with Indiana’s pattern of data collection. The data for 2015-16 cannot be reported as cut scores for the new assessment were not able to be achieved for this school year. Indiana’s Alternate Assessment took place, students were tested, but students were not graded and no proficiency levels were assigned. These students are included in the number of students enrolled but not in the number of students participating.

Montana has not yet identified performance levels for the ACT assessment. We plan to do so as soon as possible. We have reported the 11th grade students taking the ACT as participants, but no proficiency level data is available.
