The Summarized Factorial Assessment Outline: A Structural Paradigm for EMR and L-D Assessment.
Gerig, Gaylord E.
Described is the Summarized Factorial Assessment Outline (SFAO), a total assessment procedure for educable mentally retarded and learning disabled students which is centered on the three diagnostic processes of identification, interpretation, and prescription for remediation. Following an introduction covering the problem, purpose, need, and limitations of the study are sections which include a review of the literature (with discussions of behavior, academic performance, and statistical measurement), a description of the typical assessment process (including a review of the typical classroom measurement, system-wide assessment, and individualized measurement of educational adequacy, as well as weaknesses within the typical measurement), the assessment procedure steps (such as behavioral observation) of the SFAO, the data assessment program for three elementary level underachievers, and interpretation of the data and prescription for remediation of the three case studies. It is concluded that the SFAO can be used by the clinician with any of the present standardized assessment instruments and provides for an increased clarity in the process of identification, interpretation, and prescription for remediation. Among appendixes are a glossary of terms, information on the behavioral observation chart, and a sample summarized statistical profile chart. Also provided is a bibliography with 74 entries. (SB)
