Educational Assessment: A Guide for Teachers of the Learning Disabled. Revised Edition. Bulletin No. 5232.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Handicapped Children and Pupil Services.
Intended for teachers of the learning disabled (LD), the guide addresses philosophical and procedural issues in assessment. The first section introduces a philosophical framework which views assessment as an ongoing, goal-directed, integral part of the overall educational process. The remainder of the guide focuses on Wisconsin's procedures for assessment and touches upon the following aspects: the state's criteria for LD; the multidisciplinary team's role; LD assessment report guidelines; classroom teacher reports; classroom observation cues and guides; interview ideas for students, parents and teachers; diagnosis through teaching; curriculum-based assessment; and instrumentation and technical adequacy of commonly used tests. A list of selected professional readings is followed by a glossary of approximately 70 terms. (CL)
