LINC Resources, Inc., Columbus, OH.; Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
Four papers focus on implementation of protection in evaluation procedures (PEP) specified in P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Each of the authors commissioned to develop guidelines in PEP are represented: Reginald Jones ("Protection in Evaluation Procedures: Criteria and Recommendations"); Jane Mercer ("Protection in Evaluation Procedures"); James Ysseldyke ("Implementing the 'Protection in Evaluation Procedures' Provisions of P.L. 94-142"); and Ellis Page ("Tests and Decisions for the Handicapped"). The final section presents a summary of a 2-day panel meeting (representatives of state and local education agencies, universities, and the federal government) which examined issues such as the adequacy of child evaluations for eligibility and programming decisions, and offered recommendations regarding the development of technical assistance guides for local districts concerned with PEP. A five-page reference list is included. (CL)
