For courses in Special Education Assessment.

An authoritative collection of the best research-based approaches for assessing students with disabilities.

A volume unlike any other, this book helps special educators combat the gap between research and practice by identifying the big ideas of assessment in special education. Appropriate for practitioners, teacher-educators, and policymakers, this book is written by leading authorities in the field and gathers the most meaningful research and practices regarding assessment in a single source. Chapters offer a consistent format that includes definition of approach, theoretical underpinnings, description, fidelity checklist, and research-based summaries. Sections discuss the processes of assessment that special educators encounter when they work in general education settings, with parents, on eligibility decisions, and on high-stakes testing.
