John Salvia is Professor Emeritus of Special Education at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Salvia is also the author of individual tests and numerous articles on the assessment of students with disabilities. His research focused on using assessment information to plan and evaluate educational programs and the impact of regular education reforms on assessment practices with exceptional students. Dr. Salvia remains interested in the extent to which students receive appropriate educational assessments.Review:
"John Salvia is the leading expert on assessment in special education. His writing is excellent and his text provides such depth in addition to breadth."
"This is one of my favorite textbooks because it provides my students with rich information that will help them on a daily basis in the classroom. Assessment is the basis of informed decision making and students must have a solid grasp of assessment. Salvia, Ysseldyke, and Bolt have provided the information and if the students will add the labor, they will be thoroughly prepared in the area of special education assessment."
"I like the whole book, but some of the chapters that stand out from other texts are 'Legal and Ethical Considerations in Assessment,' 'Test Adaptations and Accommodations,' and 'Making Accountability Decisions.' This is critical information that is often overlooked or briefly mentioned in other texts."
"I appreciate the work of the authors to publish what I consider the state of the art in assessment texts."
