The WAAS-Portfolio is designed for a small percentage of the total school
population for whom traditional assessments, even with accommodations, are not
an appropriate measure of progress.
ProFile is the online management tool that houses all of the forms necessary to complete the WAAS-Portfolio. On the homepage you can log-in with your existing email/password or you can register as a new user.

The WAAS-Portfolio Access Guide is an abbreviated version of the Teachers' Guide to assist the teacher with assessment decision making and WAAS-Portfolio administration.
Select grade level content standards (GLEs or PEs) have been “extended” for use in the WAAS-Portfolio assessment for students with significant cognitive challenges.
Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs)
PLDs represent the entire range of
performance and define the scores received on the WAAS-Portfolio. The PLDs
describe the characteristics of each level, from L1 (below standard) to L4
(exceeds standard). The PLDs have been developed for each content area and grade
band that is assessed by the WAAS-Portfolio.
