Minority Handicapped Students: Assessment Issues and Practices. Module III.
Olion, Ladelle; And Others
The third of a five module series provides teacher educators and preservice teachers with knowledge of the nondiscriminatory testing procedures mandated by P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) and of assessment issues and practices as they relate to the evaluation of minority students. An initial section offers guidelines for a presession and describes the organizational structure of the module. Three sessions, to be presented in 50 minute classes, cover the following topics: assessment (definition and purposes of assessment, the developmental history, traditional assessment techniques); P.L. 94-142 and assessment (rights of parents and students, the test communication mode, test validity, assessment personnel, test interpretation, multifactor assessment, multidisciplinary teams, independent evaluations); and assessment of minority students (early assessment, assessment of strengths and weaknesses, criterion referenced tests, psychosocial testing, observational techniques, test norming on specific minority groups, parent and teacher involvement). Sections for each class include an instructional plan, handouts/transparencies list, lecture material, references, and resources. Pre- and postassessment tests, a glossary, handouts, and transparency masters are also given. (SB)
