About the Author:

Edward S. Shapiro, PhD, until his death in 2016, was Director of the Center for Promoting Research to Practice and Professor in the School Psychology Program at Lehigh University. Best known for his work in curriculum-based assessment and nonstandardized methods of assessing academic skills problems, Dr. Shapiro was author or coauthor of numerous books. He also developed the widely used BOSS (Behavioral Observation of Students in Schools) software system and presented papers, chaired symposia, and delivered invited addresses at conferences around the world. Dr. Shapiro's contributions to the field of school psychology have been recognized with the Outstanding Contributions to Training Award from Trainers of School Psychologists, the Distinguished Contribution to School Psychology Award from the Pennsylvania Psychological Association, the Eleanor and Joseph Lipsch Research Award from Lehigh University, and the Senior Scientist Award from the Division of School Psychology of the American Psychological Association, among other honors.

Review:

"Long a standard in the field, this book will continue to serve as a seminal text. With updated chapters on assessing instructional placement and providing instructional modification and a new chapter on RTI, the fourth edition belongs on the shelf of any practitioner who desires to more fully understand direct academic assessment and RTI."--John M. Hintze, PhD, Professor and Director, School Psychology Program, University of Massachusetts-Amherst
 
"An essential resource for school psychologists. The fourth edition of Academic Skills Problems and the companion workbook update the core features of previous editions within a contemporary multi-tiered format. Shapiro has provided an excellent reference on curriculum-based assessment, measurement, and evaluation, as well as formal classroom observation techniques. He not only describes how to assess student difficulties, but also offers ample intervention guidance. This text will work well in a number of courses related to the training of school psychologists; I personally will use it in my course on Instructional Consultation."--Joseph F. Kovaleski, DEd, Director, Doctoral Program in School Psychology, Indiana University of Pennsylvania
 
[practitioner quote]
"This essential reference provides a synthesis of cutting-edge research and offers pragmatic, practitioner-oriented guidance relevant to each and every member of a school’s problem-solving team. The fourth edition continues to be unique in its comprehensive approach to teasing apart the utility and implementation of various assessment methods and linking identified skills problems to simple yet highly effective interventions. Of particular relevance today is the focus on data analysis and interpretation in the context of response to intervention (RTI) frameworks. Given the critical need for administering technically adequate RTI assessment practices with fidelity, Academic Skills Problems, Fourth Edition, and the accompanying workbook are invaluable as tools for both preservice training and staff professional development."--Laura Lent, EdS, NCSP, staff development and training specialist, Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13, Pennsylvania
