Re-Examining the Eligibility Determination Process. A Policy Forum To Examine Policy and Practices in Current and Alternative Eligibility Systems in Special Education (Washington, DC, May 3-4, 1993).
National Association of State Directors of Special Education, Alexandria, VA.
This report describes a forum to examine policy and practice in current and alternative eligibility systems in special education. It briefly explains the purpose and organization of the forum and outcomes. Outcomes include recommendations for action such as: linking of collaborative multidimensional assessments to intervention and practice, re-examination of the validity of assessment techniques, re-examination of state regulations regarding assessment techniques that are closely aligned with instruction, and changing the funding mechanism of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) so that funding is based on total census rather than by individual disability. Most of the report consists of appendices, which include a list of forum participants; selections from IDEA pertaining to evaluation/assessment; the forum agenda; and issues identified, organized by cluster.
