Teachers Perceptions of the Evaluation Services for Young Children.
Jacobs, Ellen
Evaluated was the extent to which 101 primary grade and preschool Canadian teachers were satisfied with existing screening and testing services for children with possible learning disabilities. Results of the questionnaire indicated that 79% of the teachers believe that testing beyond the assessments carried out in the classroom is a good idea, that in 31.8% of the cases the final decision to test the child rested with the parents; that the most commonly encountered problem expressed by the teachers is the time delay between the request for testing and the actual test administration, that in 61.1% of the cases the examiner's report included recommendations for remedial activities, by that only 27.6% of the teachers felt that the report of the test results helped them to deal more effectively with the child, and that children were easier to work with when the test results had been explained to the parents. Two forms of the questionnaire are appended. (DB)
