Assessment of Exceptional Students, Fifth Edition, offers a practical approach that emphasizes how both informal and formal procedures fit into the overall assessment process. Retaining the major features of previous editions, this text details historical, legal, and philosophical issues as well as current concerns in the field. It provides up-to-date coverage of assessment instruments, techniques, and procedures that are used with special education students, and reviews observation, criterion-referenced testing, curriculum-based and portfolio assessment, and other alternative procedures. In addition to covering the areas of ability assessment, achievement testing, early childhood assessment, and vocational assessment, the text also provides readers with a complete chapter on case studies that examine the instruments and techniques for students with both mild and severe disabilities.
