Welcome to the website of Pennsylvania's Alternate System of Assessment for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. On this site is information about why and how the test is given, how it is scored, and what happens to the scores for the students taking the test. Additionally, it is a resource for teachers regarding the Pennsylvania state adapted standards for these students. PASA is a part of the accountability system for the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education.


    Content on the PASA website will be changing over the next few months, please check back after August for updated information.
