Description

Cases in Special Education Assessment enhances any traditional asssessment text by bridging the gap between learning how to administer tests in an assessment course and understanding the practical aspects of administering assessments to a real child in a school. This casebook goes beyond providing the student with the technical “know-how” to administer and interpret a particular test by providing a much-neededcontext for the factors taken into considerations in the process of effective assessment.
