The State Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education, will continue to use the Brigance IED-II (2004) as the assessment instrument to collect and report early childhood outcome (ECO) information in the State Performance Plan (SPP) and Annual Performance Report (APR). The IED-II (2004) is the same assessment instrument that has been used since 2005. The state will not be converting to a new edition nor a new assessment instrument for the 2014-2015 school year.
A letter was recently issued to all of Connecticut’s school districts informing them that the Brigance IED-II (2004) will continue to be the assessment instrument utilized for ECO reporting. The letter also contains ordering information for those school districts that may need additional IED-II Developmental Record Books.
