Product Description

From the Back Cover

Now in its third edition, Assessment for Students in Special and General Education continues to provide a full-spectrum of assessment strategies supported by current research and best practices, with newly added focus on progress monitoring and Response to Intervention (RTI). The text remains as strong as ever on providing teachers with a variety of assessment procedures, and the directions on how to construct, administer, score, interpret, graph, monitor, write, and report assessment results. Future educators will gain the pertinent skills necessary to effectively use assessment, particularly informal assessment, in understanding the needs of the whole student in today’s general and special education classrooms. With a fresh, new four-part structure, (Overview of the RTI and Special Education Process; Types of Assessment; Basic Skills and Content-Subject Assessment; and Special Focus Assessment ), and thorough updates and revisions in every chapter, once again Spinelli’s text proves its worth in being one of the top-selling texts on assessment in special education.

This is a very helpful text for developing your own curriculum based measurements to assess progress in reading, writing, and math. This book will guide you through how to create various assessments. It also shows you how to give a leveled ranking to reading passages. It provides suggestions on approximate mastery levels a teacher should expect at various stages of development. If you need to assess your students this is an excellent guide for how to create your own assessments. The steps are easy! Anyone can do this. The benefit, is that you can use the materials in your class to create the assessments. There are also suggestions of things to assess that I personally would never have thought to assess. These strategies will come in handy for showing parents the progress that their students have made throughout the year.

The book was sent on time and in new condition. This book is pretty easy to read. I am reading it for a graduate course. The book is very informative on current educational laws and compliance. It includes many charts, tables, and resources to help implement various parts of special education laws. This book contains a lot of assessment information including types of assessments, and content and subject specific information.

I was assigned this text for a class about differentiated instruction and assessment and I've found it very informative. The author looks at many types of assessment used in schools and provides reasoning behind their use with students. Examples of good assessments are provided. I can see this book being pulled out in the future to help me construct assessments for my students.

I really liked the examples of assessments in this book. For my class we had to create several of our own short assessments and this book had all of the examples I needed. The assessments are short and basic for any teacher to use. Highly recommend!
