A Survey of Current Placement Practices and Eligibility Criteria for the Learning Disabled Child in Oklahoma.
Jones, C. D., Jr.; Prickett, Jimmie L. V.
The report presents findings of a December 1983 survey of procedures used in 24 local Oklahoma school districts to identify and place learning disabled (LD) students. The survey intended to identify various eligibility criteria and placement practices and to disseminate findings to educational decisionmakers at the state and local levels. Data are presented in table form and include the responses of each of the 24 districts to questions regarding past and current practices, including additional evaluation techniques beyond those outlined in state standards. Each response lists the local contact person and that person's findings or impressions. Responses touch on such practices as additional diagnostic testing, use of the 50% discrepancy formula, and informal as well as formal evaluation considerations. (CL)
