Handbook for the Identification and Assessment of Disadvantaged Learners.
Wircenski, Jerry L., Comp.
Designed to generate evaluative information to support instructional decision-making and to support administrative operations, this handbook consists of two major sections: (1) an overview of a comprehensive system for learner identification and assessment, and (2) a selection of sample resource procedures and forms that will facilitate implementation of the system. The identification and assessment system includes alternative methods of evaluating student needs and designing instructional strategies to meet these needs. Furthermore, the system includes activities that will provide feedback to students and teachers so that progress can be monitored and changes implemented. The second section contains evaluation instruments that have been found to provide useful identification assessment information when working with special needs learners in vocational education. Included are sample identification forms, sample preassessment forms, sample formative and summative assessment forms, and sample followup assessment forms. Appended material includes a classification system for the disadvantaged and federal guidelines for identifying disadvantaged and handicapped persons in vocational education programs. (LRA)
