Preparing Students with Mild Disabilities for Taking State and District Tests
Conderman, Greg; Pedersen, Theresa
Intervention in School and Clinic, v45 n4 p232-241 2010
Recent legislation such as No Child Left Behind and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 has made significant changes in how all students are assessed. Because scores on state and district tests have important implications for students, parents, and school personnel, teachers and students should approach testing with a serious and positive attitude. This article highlights several ways to prepare students with mild disabilities for taking state and district standardized assessments which can be effective practices for teachers. Readers may wish to choose from these practical suggestions to help their students perform optimally on state and district tests. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
