Jimenez, Bree A.; Mims, Pamela J.; Browder, Diane M.
Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v47 n4 p407-413 Dec 2012
Effective practices in student data collection and implementation of data-based instructional decisions are needed for all educators, but are especially important when students have severe intellectual and developmental disabilities. Although research in the area of data-based instructional decisions for students with severe disabilities shows benefits for using data, there is limited research to demonstrate teachers in applied settings can acquire the decision-making skills required. The purpose of this research was to demonstrate how teachers from five states acquired a set of data-based decisions implementation guidelines through online professional development. Recommendations for practice and future research are included. (Contains 1 table.)
