Parental Reports of Perceived Assessment Utility: A Comparison of Authentic and Conventional Approaches
Macy, Marisa; Thorndike-Christ, Tracy; Lin, Yu-Chu
Infants and Young Children, v23 n4 p286-302 Oct-Dec 2010
This study examined parent reports of 2 assessment approaches used for eligibility determination: conventional and authentic. Parents of children with and without disabilities completed a satisfaction survey following each of 2 assessments. Differences in how parents perceived the utility of developmental assessments based on the type of assessment approach (ie, either conventional or authentic), the setting in which the assessment occurred, and the child's eligibility status were examined. Results of this study have implications for conducting authentic, developmental assessments with children and families used for eligibility determination.
