Making clear connections between assessment and instruction that so many similar texts lack, this first edition special education assessment textbook uses current research and standards-based assessment material grounded in field-based case studies to highlight the contemporary issues affecting students in classrooms today. With a strong emphasis on diversity, this robust and practical book offers current teachers and pre-service teachers alike an eye-opening and clear exploration of current formal and informal assessment tool analysis with respect to accommodations, modifications, legal and technology matters. Real-life case studies are incorporated into each chapter, helping readers to hone their decision-making skills and to understand how the chapter material relates to practical applications. At the same time, break point practices, illustrations of assessment tools, and website references provide students with multiple opportunities for self-assessment, higher-level analysis and classroom applications.
