When the Best Is Not Good Enough: An Examination of Best Practice.
Peters, Mary T.; Heron, Timothy E.
Journal of Special Education, v26 n4 p371-85 Win 1993
This article reviews use of the term "best practice" in special education and suggests that the term is misleading unless measurable criteria have been systematically applied. A proposed definition focuses on the theoretical basis for a procedure, integrity of the research design and extent of replication, consensus with literature, process and product outcomes, and social validity.
