Enggren, Priscilla, Ed.; Kovaleski, Joseph F., Ed.
Instructional assessment is a systematic approach to solving student academic, behavioral, and social-emotional problems by identifying the key factors that have created or are encouraging the problem. The instructional support team (IST) process emphasizes assistance to students. Assessment in IST consists of ongoing analysis of student functioning through assessments conducted in a functional context within the regular classroom. This training manual provides the essential elements that should be covered in any training in instructional assessment. It is to be used in conjunction with other training manuals for the Instructional Support System of Pennsylvania (ISSP). The following chapters are included: (1) "Background and Assumptions for Instructional Assessment"; (2)"Instructional Assessment's Role"; (3) "Phases of the IST Process"; (4) "Instructional Assessment for Behavior and Student Assistance"; (5) "Overheads/Training Suggestions"; and (6) "Activities/ Training Suggestions." Appendixes discuss curriculum-based assessment questions and answers and academic learning time, and present a case study in assessment instruction. (Contains 65 references.) (SLD)
