Achievement Level Descriptor (ALD's)

What are Range Achievement Level Descriptors?

Range Achievement Level Descriptors (ALDs) demonstrate how skills described in the Nebraska College and Career Ready (CCR) Standards likely change and become more sophisticated as ability and performance increases. The ALDs also describe the evidence needed to help infer where a student is along the range.

This range is defined by Nebraska using three levels:

• Developing – not yet demonstrating proficiency

• On Track – demonstrating proficiency

• College and Career Benchmark – demonstrating advanced proficiency

ALD's grades 3-8: https://www.education.ne.gov/assessment/nscas-general-summative-assessment/nscas-english-language-arts-ela/
