8. : Question Number 3: Is the student unable to acquire, maintain, or generalize skills (in multiple settings) and demonstrate performance of these skills without intensive, frequent individualized instruction? The main points to be considered in this question is the student need for intensive, frequent re-teaching, and individualized instruction and whether the student has demonstrated difficulty in acquiring, maintaining, and generalizing skills across many environments, not just the school setting.
When the IEP determines "yes" answer to all three questions, a student may participate in the IAA in any of the three content areas. However, Yes answers do not necessarily mean that a student cannot participate in the general education assessments in areas where the student may demonstrate some unique strengths that will lead them to completion of the general education curriculum.
The IEP team needs to review the answers to all three questions annually at the development of the studentís annual IEP.
