Career Assessment Guidelines for Middle and High School Students with Special Needs.
Stamm, Martin L., Ed.
These career assessment guidelines provide an assessment packet that can be used by special education teachers or guidance counselors to assess the vocational and career interests of middle and high school special education students. The materials are designed to assist with test interpretation, to help high school students make realistic decisions for future job selections, and to guide middle school curriculum choices. The guidebook explains test administration, scoring, and interpretation by providing examples of each achievement/personality/career interests test and summary evaluations that were made by graduate student interns who worked with special education students as a part of the testing process that led to the development of this document. Each test is described in detail according to its purpose, validity, reliability, format, norms, age limits, predictiveness, answer sheet type, multiple forms, reading level, time limits, different levels for the same test, comparability to other tests, and statistical yield. In addition, a job competence evaluation sheet is presented along with a summary data form. An annotated bibliography concludes the guidebook. (JAC)
