Help Your Struggling Student: Become an Informed Consumer When Seeking an Evaluation
Thorne, Glenda C.; Thomas, Alice
Center for Development and Learning
Parents and teachers have found that evaluations, both those provided by public school systems and private clinicians and hospitals, vary greatly in their comprehensiveness, usefulness of information and specificity of recommendations. Therefore, parents must become informed consumers when selecting who will evaluate their children as well as what kind of evaluation will best serve their child's needs. The following topics are briefly discussed in this document: (1) Providers of Evaluations; (2) Evaluation Methods and Sources of Information; (3) A Good Evaluation Delivers More Than Test Scores; (4) Feedback: A Critical--But Often Overlooked--Component of the Evaluation Process; and (5) Questions Parents Should Ask.
