Perspectives on Assessment of Learning Disabled Students.
Ysseldyke, James E.; Algozzine, Bob
The paper considers problems in current assessment and evaluation practices with learning disabled students and discusses forces for change. Among the weaknesses noted are inadequate conceptual and definitional frameworks, practitioner bias, and technical inadequacies of currently used norm referenced tests. The authors outline three factors influencing change: move to curriculum based assessment, increased concern for teacher accountability, and better application of research findings in educational practice.
