Known for its practical, applied approach, the fourth edition of John VennsAssessing Students with Special Needscontinues to focus on how teachers can use assessment as a guide to instruction.nbsp; This noteworthy revision focuses on what teachers really need to know to include assessment in the curriculum.nbsp; Coverage includes all of the core information expected of an assessment text, but the book goes far beyond the basics by addressing multicultural considerations, technology and assessment, high-stakes testing, and the reauthorization of IDEA.nbsp; The book clearly shows how assessment is more than giving a test to a child, but is an essential tool for teachers as they help students achieve, learn, develop, and grow.
