Abstract

Access means more than participation in general education classes and end-of-year achievement tests. Real access involves the opportunity for all students to learn the intended curriculum and demonstrate what they have achieved as a result of their learning. In an era of standards-based accountability, these goals of access are at the heart of high-quality instruction and testing practices.
