Minimum Competency Testing and Handicapped Children: Is There a Role for the School Psychologist?
Vance, Booney; Fuller, Gerald B.
School psychologists can play a central role in ensuring that handicapped students are treated fairly in minimum competency testing (MCT). Advocacy concerns include protection in the evaluation process as well as access to graduation and/or a high school diploma. In addition to these rights guaranteed by P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, two other areas in MCT should be monitored by school psychologists: modifications in testing and the relationship between MCT and special education. A clearer relationship is needed between development and implementation of the individualized education program and the MCT. (CL)
