Assessment Practices of Professionals Serving Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing: An Initial Investigation
Luckner, John L.; Bowen, Sandy
American Annals of the Deaf, v151 n4 p410-417 Fall 2006
Assessment currently plays a critical role in American schools and society, in tasks ranging from ranking schools' effectiveness, to determining individual placement, to planning instruction. The purpose of the study was to gather data about the formal and informal assessment instruments and processes used by professionals in deaf education. Respondents indicated that statewide annual assessments are the most frequently used measures, followed by the Stanford Achievement Test series and the Woodcock-Johnson III Test of Achievement. Commonly used assessment instruments and procedures for each academic area are reported in rank order. Issues about current practices are raised, and suggestions for additional research related to assessment practices in deaf education are provided. (Contains 3 tables.)
