Behavioral Perspectives on the Assessment of Learning Disabled Children.
Deno, Stanley L.; And Others
The monograph considers four issues in behavioral assessment of learning disabled (LD) students: primary assumptions of the behavioral approach, identification of LD students, program planning for identified students, and program evaluation. Among factors examined in the first section are the components of experimental analysis of behavior, including direct observation and recording and single subject research designs. The section on identification of LD Ss reviews the basis for creating service programs that use behavioral assessment techniques to identify LD Ss and speculates on effects of person centered and situation centered orientations. The use of behavioral assessment in making program planning decisions (including developing individualized education programs) is the focus of the third section. The final part reviews the role of behavioral assessment procedures in both formative and summative evaluation. (CL)
