The South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) created South Carolina College and Career Ready Standards in 2020.  After these standards were developed, the SCDE convened a committee to prioritize the most important standards for students with significant cognitive disabilities.

Test blueprints serve as a guide for test construction and provide an outline of the content and skills to be measured on the test. They contain information about individual tests, including the number of points on the test, and show how the learning standards are grouped in order to report the test results.
