Testing and Teaching Handicapped Children and Youth in Developing Countries. Guides for Special Education No. 3.
This guide describes practical methods for testing and teaching handicapped children and youth, in either segregated or integrated classrooms, with the focus on developing countries. The first chapter discusses: features of a suitable curriculum; use of a task importance rating scale; and curriculum content, including home environment tasks, community environment tasks, vocational tasks, and tasks common to all environments. A chapter on testing addresses criterion-referenced tests and norm-referenced tests, examines methods of adopting existing tests and curricula, and gives examples of some tests and curricula. The final chapter describes methods of instruction, such as sequential group instruction, concurrent group instruction, and individual instruction, and discusses the use of prompts, modelling, task analysis, shaping, rewards, and practice.
