Psycho-Educational Assessment of Native American Students. A Manual of Inservice Training Activities and Resource Materials for School Personnel and School Psychologists. [Final Report].
The volume presents agendas of two inservice training workshops for school personnel on student assessment and two seminars for psychologists, held in the summers of 1981 and 1982, on the topic of placement and Individualized Education Program (IEP) development for handicapped Native American children. This document was prepared to accompany a study of the extent to which psychoeducational testing reports were used in one Navajo district and on the obstacles affecting their use. The content of the inservice was based on strengths and weaknesses identified in the psychoeducational assessment process. The workshops focused on student assessment and included discussions of such topics as mainstreaming; provisions of P.L. 94-142, (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act); referral; multidisciplinary evaluation teams; P.L. 94-142 compliance review forms; and precision teaching. The seminars addressed such topics as psychoeducational testing report formats, review of assessment procedures, assessment instruments, report writing and staffing and evaluation referral information. For each of the workshops and seminars, information is presented on agenda and rationale for topic selection as well as examples, exercises, and resource material; in addition, evaluation reports are included for the workshops. Among appended material are a psychoeducational testing report format and report critique form, instructions for the teacher rating scale, and a guide to definitions of diagnostic categories and program considerations.
