Front Cover
P.H. Brookes Publishing Company, 2001 - Education - 252 pages
Alternate assessments are now mandated for students unable to participate in largescale educational assessments. In this informative book, education professionals will learn about specific strategies for implementing alternate assessments -- including electronic portfolio assessments and keyboard overlays for students to record responses -- and see how they showcase student abilities in multiple settings. They'll discover how to integrate these flexible assessment activities into daily instruction to raise the level of achievement for students with special needs and ensure that they have access to the general curriculum. Educators will use the included photocopiable forms and tables to easily evaluate their students' progress -- and use that information to help students every day.
