"This is the second of two themed volumes addressing current issues and trends in special education. Volume 20 covers research, technology, and teacher preparation whilst volume 19 covered identification, assessment and instruction. The field of special education constantly changes as a result of legislation, new instructional formats and current research investigations. It can be difficult for general and special educators, school counselors and psychologists, administrators and practicing clinicians to keep up with these changes and be current in all areas relating to special education. The special education literature knowledge base should reflect these changes; however, there is no current resource that effectively and comprehensively does this. The purpose of "Current Issues and Trends in Special Education" is to fill this void, providing chapters written by active researchers and practitioners in their respective areas.

Release Date: 2012-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

Setting the standard in professional assessment resources, ASSESSMENT offers basic assessment information along with a handbook-style reference to comprehensive, frank reviews of the tests most administered in K-12 schools. Updated to reflect changes in the field, the new edition takes advantage of the text’s robust website, Education CourseMate, to convey information and promote active learning. It also brings to the forefront the hot topics of RTI and ELL, while retaining key features that have made the text a classic. The authors focus on standardized tests that are used to assess students in special and inclusive education: the details of the tests, what does and doesn’t work with them, and how to interpret the test data--but also how to look at the individual child’s needs. Appropriate for novices and experts, this text equips readers with the knowledge and tools to assess their students’ skills and abilities effectively and efficiently. Featuring an emphasis on improved outcomes, it shows readers how to broaden their assessment labors from efforts designed to make predictions about students’ lives to efforts that can make a difference in the lives of the students they serve. In order to ensure that our readers have access to assessment information that is comprehensive and up-to-date, and that can be tailored to their unique learning needs, we have made greater use of the Education CourseMate, which allows us to offer more in depth information about topics that may be of particular interest to only a subset of readers. We now include in the text summaries of five chapters that are available in their entirety on CourseMate, including Chapter 10, How to Evaluate a Test, Chapter 18, Using Measures of Adaptive Behavior, Chapter 19, Assessment of Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers, Chapter 20, Assessment of Sensory Acuity, and Chapter 25, Using Portfolios in Assessment.
