Ongoing Data Collection for Measuring Child Progress.
Stevens-Dominquez, Meave, Ed.; Stremel-Campbell, Kathleen, Ed.
Practical information is supplied that can be directly applied to early childhood projects and used for staff inservice in data collection procedures. This information assists in documenting the overall effectiveness of an approach and aids in making the frequent educational decisions to ensure the child is benefiting from instruction. Separate chapters discuss: (1) starting up with data-based programs (by Eugene Edgar); (2) a simplified method of data collection for inappropriate behaviors (by H.D. "Bud" Fredericks); (3) collecting data on social skills (by Karen J. Morris); (4) assessment and modification of cognitive processes of handicapped children (by William A. Bricker and others; (5) measuring motor behavior (by Philippa H. Campbell and others); (6) developing language through communicative interaction (by Linda L. Lynch and Johanna L. Lewis); (7) measuring self-help skills (by William G. Moore); and (8) data-based program change decisions (by Owen R. White and Norris G. Haring). (PN)
