University Involvement in Pupil Appraisal Services in Louisiana Public Schools.
Detraz, Kirby; And Others
The pupil appraisal process in Louisiana special education services features resource teams from eight universities throughout the state working through interagency agreements between the universities and the State Department of Education. The university teams provide technical assistance, annual compliance reviews, and inservice workshops on appraisal issues. All parties involved benefit: university programs are strengthened by field experiences, public school practitioners learn about new trends and materials, and local school boards become aware of other districts' efforts to solve similar situations. The psychologist and the assessment teacher functions on the University Resource Teams are especially important. (CL)
