An Observational Instrument Based on the Objectives of a Special Education Curriculum.
Swan, William W.
The construction of a category-type observational instrument based on sets of similar behavioral components from mutually exclusive subsets of measurably stated objectives of a particular special education treatment program is described. Systematic Who-to-Whom Analysis Notation is an in-process instrument employed unobtrusively, utilizing a who-to-whom format and the three-second rule. The observational data are reported to teachers and supervisors in meaningful forms and are used to supplement teachers' impressions and other clinical judgments in the evaluation of progress and in the subsequent modification of the treatment for each child participating in the Rutland Center program.
