Proceedings of the Minnesota Roundtable Conference on Assessment of Learning Disabled Children.
Ysseldyke, James E., Ed.; Mirkin, Phyllis K., Ed.
Proceedings from the Minnesota Roundtable Conference on Assessment of Learning Disabled children include two major presentations reviewing research and reactions to those presentations from conference participants. J. Ysseldyke's presentation "Psychoeducational Assessment and Decision Making" reviews basic considerations underlying his research on the assessment-intervention process; describes some of the issues involved (such as definitional debates, use of tests for purposes other than those for which they were intended, and questions regarding the tests' technical adequacy); and outlines six areas of research (including computer simulation studies and ecological research on placement team decision making). Reactions to the paper are given by B. Keogh, L. Goodman, and R. Woodcock. Discussion highlights on the topic follow. In the second major presentation, "Behavioral Research Methodology as a Basis for the Formative Evaluation of Learning Disability Services," S. Deno outlines background factors and assumptions of a 3 year study on the effectiveness of teacher implemented systematic formative evaluation. T. Lovitt, P. Newcomer, and J. Jenkins provide reactions, with highlights of the discussion included. A summary of discussion comments concluding the conference is also provided. (CL)
