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.
