At last, a practical guide to the what, how, when, and where of effective assessment!

When determining whether or not a student should receive special education services, what the specific nature of the student’s instruction should be, or the extent to which a student is making educational progress, it is critical to know not only what sort of assessment method is most appropriate, but how, when, and where it should be administered.

Including a pretest, posttest, and key vocabulary terms, Effective Assessment for Students With Special Needs helps educators make these weighty decisions with highly practical information such as:

  • Formal and informal methods of data collection
  • When to use various assessment practices and what they can show an evaluator
  • Standards for conducting assessments to ensure accuracy
  • Using data to make decisions about the education of students with disabilities and those who are gifted and talented

A Practical Approach to Special Education for Every Teacher: The 13-Book Collection equips educators with practical knowledge and methods that will help them to better engage students in exploring-and meeting-their fullest potential.
