Evaluer pour enseigner: a la decouverte d'une pedagogie efficiente aupres de l'eleve sourd (To Evaluate for Instruction: The Discovery of an Efficient Teaching Method for Deaf Students).
This report discusses an approach for the psychoeducational evaluation of students with deafness in the Francophone population of Ontario, Canada. An introduction describes the historical context of education of deaf students and presents the idea that learning a sign language, ideally while the child is very young, furnishes a foundation for subsequently learning to read and write in a second language, French. The report contends that a revision of evaluation strategies is needed, in order to determine: the child's potential, the level of performance achieved, and which teaching strategies will best reduce the gap between the two. Subsequent chapters deal with: (1) the goals of evaluation and the evaluation process; (2) mediation as a central element of evaluation as well as teaching; (3) components of dynamic evaluation including philosophy, preparation, implementation, instruments, and interpretation of results; (4) particular concerns relating to students with deafness, including learning processes and dominant cognitive style and the impact of these concerns on teaching strategies and materials; (5) personalized intervention plans; and (6) integration of evaluation into the service system.
