Guide for Nonbiased Assessment. Revised.
Maculaitis, Jean D'Arcy
This guide presents a series of check lists to help teachers and counselors provide nonbiased assessment for referred children, particularly those who are culturally different. The first section deals with evaluating the legitimacy of the referral and considers whether parents have been properly notified. The second section, meeting the child, considers the cultural values of the child or the evaluator which may influence the outcome of the assessment. The next sections deal with selection of an appropriate assessment approach, test administration, and scoring and interpretation. Consultation with team members and the assessment report are also covered. The final two sections evaluate the appropriateness of the individual education plan and outline follow-up responsibilities. The format of the guide consists of questions in each section with space provided to check a yes/no response, and a space for general comments. Several pages at the end of the guide are provided for summaries of the evaluation, by section. (JAC)
