A Naturalistic Investigation of Special Education Team Meetings.
Ysseldyke, James E., Ed.; And Others
Placement team decision making for elementary or junior high learning disabled students was studied in a naturalistic investigation of 38 meetings using both observation and videotaping procedures. Teams of researchers collected data on the effectiveness of the special education team process, the domains of data and kinds of assessment data discussed during placement team decision making, the extent to which the process is data based, the participation of regular education teachers in the process, the generation of intervention statements by teams, and the views of placement team members. Among findings were that almost half the time in a team meeting was spent discussing assessment information and that regular classroom teachers participated very little in team meetings. (Author/DB)
