The Need for an Ecological Assessment of the Exceptional Student.
Colson, Steve; And Others
Ecological assessment models for handicapped students are described and guidelines are offered for using the models in the assessment process. Information is broken down to separate environments: within the child, within the school, and within the home. Within-child factors to be assessed include medical, academic, cognitive, and affective deficiencies. Within-school influences may be assessed through a variety of measures, including analysis of facilities, personnel, tasks, climate, and curricula. Within-school factors include teacher-student relationships and peer interactions. Problems of ecological assessment within the home are noted, such as ethical concerns which prevent the assessment of parental and sibling interactions. (CL)
