A Flowchart Guide to Assist Educators in Their Selection of Appropriate Assessment Instruments.
Ammer, Jerome J.
A model is described that was developed to train future learning disabilities specialists to select and execute diagnostic prescriptive strategies. A series of flowcharts depict the diagnostic-prescriptive model from point of referral, specifying steps for the process in language and readings. The sequence of tasks illustrate critical decisions which must be made and the results of those various decisions. Decisions, portrayed in the charts by triangles, are explained to be based on the teacher's prior training and experience, strategies recommended by the clinic staff, and the initial and changing needs of the client. Among aspects of the process discussed are developing individual education programs based on assessment information, reassessing the teaching strategy and student performance, and selecting target skill areas.
