This most recent revision of Assessing Learners with Special Needs: An Applied Approach includes thorough explanations of the IDEA 2004 Regulations including RTI (response to intervention) and Early Intervening Services. Moreover, this text includes more applied exercises within the textbook. To address the increasing importance of accurate assessment of students with pervasive developmental disorders such as autism, the most widely researched diagnostic instruments are included.

 

Students using this textbook will be able to understand progress monitoring through applied exercises in which they monitor their own progress in the course, plot a goal line, and chart their progress across the semester. Students and instructors are provided with chapter-by-chapter CEC Knowledge and Skills Standards. This allows students to see the skills they are expected to master when they complete coursework that is aligned for CEC Accreditation and provides the students with an understanding of the knowledge base expected of today’s highly qualified teachers.

 

All complex concepts are included in the culminating chapter exercises on educational assessment report writing. In these exercises, students will apply their knowledge and skills needed for understanding and making data-based decisions for educational planning using both formal and informal assessment methods.

 

Highlights of the New Edition:

  • Emphasis on progress monitoring, including progress monitoring applied to the acquisition of knowledge and skills presented in this text.
  • Changes within the assessment process according to the regulations of IDEA 2004.
  • Increased number of case studies throughout the text and inclusion of exercises in the text.
  • Expanded chapter on special considerations including assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorders.
  • Increased emphasis and coverage of curriculum-based assessment.
  • Increased consideration of students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds in the assessment process.

    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.

    From the Back Cover:

Included are the textbook’s trademark integrated cases featured throughout the material to help facilitate reader comprehension of difficult concepts, followed by practice exercises and portions of assessment instruments and scoring tables.  Written to reflect the recent changes in federal regulations such as Response-to-Intervention, Early Intervening Services, and the discovery of new evidence-based practices, the revision of this widely-used text reflects the most current changes in the assessment process.
