Consistent with the standards-based reform movement, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Board of Education revised and enacted Chapter 4 of the Pennsylvania School Code. Chapter 4 specifies standards in school subjects that are to be attained by all students in the Commonwealth. Additionally, the Pennsylvania State Board approved Assessment Anchors, a subset of standards on which the annual tests are based. Both of these can be located and reviewed here. The PASA assessment is linked to these standards and anchors, but are modified as appropriate for the population of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities, the target population assessed by the PASA.
