Test-Taking Skills: A Missing Component of Deaf Students' Curriculum.
LaSasso, Carol J.
American Annals of the Deaf, v144 n1 p35-43 Mar 1999
Reviews the use of tests with deaf students, especially reading-comprehension tests, noting documented differences in test-taking abilities of deaf and hearing students and specific compensatory test-taking strategies used by deaf readers. A rationale for including a formal test-taking skills component in the curriculum for deaf students is offered. Portfolio assessment is also discussed. (Author/DB)
