Educational Outcomes and Indicators for Grade 8.
Ysseldyke, James E.; And Others
This document presents a conceptual model of educational domains and outcomes for learners in Grade 8 (or approximately 13 years of age) and possible indicators for each outcome for all students, including students with disabilities or developmental delays. In the model, educational resources (inputs and contexts) influence learning opportunity and process. These, in turn, influence the outcome domains, which include presence and participation, accommodation and adaptation, physical health, responsibility and independence, contribution and citizenship, academic and functional literacy, personal and social adjustment, and satisfaction. The conceptual model is extended by identifying outcomes within each outcome domain and then indicators of the outcomes. Examples of possible sources of data for the seven indicators within the domain called "contribution and citizenship" are provided. An annotated list of six supporting documents concludes the document. (JDD)
