Mainstream Instructional Performance Patterns of Special Education Students. Technical Note.
Performance patterns in reading, mathematics, and composition of over 13,000 special education students in grades 1 through 6 are examined relative to mainstream performance patterns. The performance of special education students is slightly less than but mirrors mainstream performance patterns. As the mainstream performance graph rises or falls so almost exactly does the performance graph on each of the special education categories. Further, the difference between special education performance surveyed at grade level corresponds closely to special education performance surveyed off grade level. The findings indicate that substantive mainstream instructional accomplishments need not be ruled out for handicapped students. (Author/CL)
