Current Assessment and Decision-Making Practices in Model Programs for the Learning Disabled.
Thurlow, Martha L.; Yesseldyke, James E.
Data from questionnaires completed by 44 Child Service Demonstration Centers were analyzed, providing information on the number of children served, the definition of LD (learning disabilities) used, the kinds of assessment data collected and the purpose for which they were used, the specific assessment devices used to collect data and the purpose for which they were used, the typical composition of the placement team, and the major sequential steps in the assessment/decision making process. Results suggested that assessment and decision making in the field of learning disabilities are characterized by variability and inconsistency. (Author)
