Assessing Students with Special Needs
Known for its practical, applied approach, the fourth edition of John Venn's Assessing Student's with Special Needs continues to focus on how teachers can use assessment as a guide to instruction. This noteworthy revision focuses on what teachers really need to know to include assessment in the curriculum. Coverage includes all of the core information expected of an assessment text, but the book goes far beyond the basics by addressing multicultural considerations, technology and assessment, high-stakes testing, and the reauthorization of IDEA. The book clearly shows how assessment is more than giving a test to a child, but is an essential tool for teachers as they help students achieve, learn, develop, and grow.
