Ideologies, Practices, and Their Implications for Special Education.
Dixon, Robert; Carnine, Douglas
Journal of Special Education, v28 n3 p356-67 Fall 1994
This paper proposes that research on a constructivist approach for students with disabilities should emphasize specific instructional and assessment practices, as opposed to broad educational ideologies. The value of a particular instructional or assessment practice (such as constructivism) is probably dependent upon context and learner characteristics, and empiricism is the most reliable means for evaluating practices.
