The Use of Technically Adequate Tests in Psychoeducational Decision Making.
Ysseldyke, James E.; And Others
Results of three separate studies were analyzed to ascertain the technical adequacy of tests used by professionals to make screening, placement/classification, instructional planning, and evaluation decisions for handicapped students. In each investigation, the frequency of usage of technically adequate instruments was addressed. The finding that various professionals employ a large number of technically inadequate measures is discussed in terms of implications for current assessment and decision making practices. (Author)
