Instructional Evaluation: School Psychologist Training of Trainers Manual.
Kovaleski, Joseph F., Ed.; Lowery, Paul E., Ed.
The goal of this workshop for school psychologists is to provide high quality training in best practices for instructional evaluation. An objective of these trainings is to facilitate the implementation of the instructional evaluation requirement of the Special Education Regulations and Standards for determining eligibility for special education services. Furthermore, these trainings are designed to help establish the role of the school psychologists as integral members of building-based instructional support teams. This manual provides the trainer with the background material, handouts, transparency masters, and suggested activities designed to achieve the workshop goals. It is intended to be a guide for the trainer, encouraging individualized approaches based upon trainee needs. An introductory section covers the background and critical features of instructional evaluation, the Instructional Support Team (IST) Process, and use of the manual. Then, specific curriculum domains are addressed, each consisting of a case study scenario, suggested intervention, measurement options for acquisition and retention, design questions, and a descriptive narrative. Topics covered are: reading, math, instructional/test application, classroom behavior, social skills, and affective behavior. The final section presents expanded case studies in academic and coping skills, with the evaluation reports. (ND)
