This text presents a uniquely practical approach to the topic of Assessment in Special Education. The authors organize the material into a ldquo;real-world story,rdquo; by having each part and chapter of the text reflect the linear chronology of the assessment process used in schools. nbsp; Unlike other books, this text is organized chronologically to present the overall process in a ldquo;straight linerdquo; - a practical and useful pedagogy in itself for the novice teacher. The text provides the practical tools necessary for a new teacher to understand the process of assessment in schools and then learn how to put it all together. It provides future special educators comprehensive coverage of the latest tests and evaluation procedures for all areas of exceptionality - for every age group - for students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities.
