Summary:
In this comparative study, Unique Learning System (ULS), a school-wide curriculum, was assessed for the possible effects on Florida Alternate Assessment (FAA) scores and the mastery of individual education plan (IEP) goals and objectives at a special needs center school. Analysis showed that FAA reading scores for the 56 students increased from the 2008-2009 school year to the 2009-2010 school year, but there was no significant change in math scores from the 2008-2009 school year to the 2009-2010 school year. The analysis also showed that the students had a significant increase in attainment of IEP goals and objectives from the 2008-2009 school year to the 2009-2010 school year. The last analysis compared the FAA scores of the 56 students from the participating school to the scores of 16 students taking the FAA within the district but not attending the participating school. Analysis showed that the students from the participating school scored lower on reading and math.
