For undergraduate and graduate courses in Assessment of Special Education. The primary focus and goal of Assessing Learners with Special Needs: An Applied Approach, 5th edition by Terry Overton is to provide undergraduate students with a practical, applied approach for learning about the complex procedures of the assessment process.

In addition, the author presents these concepts in a step-by-step manner and then creates opportunities for students to check their understanding of these concepts through practice exercises. Furthermore, readers will have portions of assessment instruments, and scoring tables as part of their exercise practice. The fifth edition maintains its excellency with added discussion of the latest information on the reauthorization of IDEA, NCLB, and the most recent regulations and how these affect assessment, throroughly updated discussion of all pertinent tests now available, increased diversity coverage, more applications and activities, and an enhanced support package developed exclusively for the text by the author.

From the Publisher:

Written especially for future special education teachers who will work in public schools, this text examines educational assessment of individuals with mild to moderate disabling conditions. The author's applied approach to the material presented through a step-by-step series of hands-on activities provides students with thorough, guided practice in actually using the tools and tests they will encounter when working. Coverage focuses specifically on assessment of individuals with the highest incidence of disability conditions--learning and behavioral problems. It encompasses special education, fundamental principles on which assessment is based, and specific assessment tools and techniques available to the special education teacher. The Second Edition underscores the social responsibility of professionals in assessment to exercise fairness and accuracy in the decision-making process. This is possible when accurate standardized assessment procedures are used as one part of the total assessment process.
