Evaluating Resources for Handicapped Students.
Hafen, Susan; Mangano, Michael
The stated purpose of this set of materials is to help educators accomplish four tasks: (1) identify "appropriate" instructional resources for handicapped students in vocational classes; (2) use an objective checklist to evaluate a resource's "usefulness" (a sample checklist is provided); (3) use criteria to evaluate a resource's "outstandingness" (a sample evaluation instrument is provided); and (4) review materials throughly and consistently (a set of reviewer guidelines are provided). Sections in this document include a rationale for evaluating resources, definitions (e.g., handicapped persons, mental retardation, learning disabilities, appropriate resources, usefulness, and outstandingness), considerations for resource evaluation, using the instructional resource checklist for "usefulness", using the curriculum-based evaluation form for "outstandingness", and implementing review procedures.
