The process of selecting civic objectives and additional assessment plans (COAAPs) begins with assessing the needs of students in your agency. For a student needs assessment form, click here.

Once you have assessed the needs of your students, use the results to select up to six civic objectives and corresponding language and literacy objectives and additional assessment plans.

First view the Pre-Approved Civic Objectives List to decide which objectives meet your students' needs. Next, view the Pre-Approved Additional Assessment Plan List to select a corresponding additional assessment plan.
