From the Publisher:

Written especially for future special education teachers who will work in public schools, this text examines educational assessment of individuals with mild to moderate disabling conditions. The author's applied approach to the material presented through a step-by-step series of hands-on activities provides students with thorough, guided practice in actually using the tools and tests they will encounter when working. Coverage focuses specifically on assessment of individuals with the highest incidence of disability conditions--learning and behavioral problems. It encompasses special education, fundamental principles on which assessment is based, and specific assessment tools and techniques available to the special education teacher. The Second Edition underscores the social responsibility of professionals in assessment to exercise fairness and accuracy in the decision-making process. This is possible when accurate standardized assessment procedures are used as one part of the total assessment process.

From the Back Cover:

Assessing Learners with Special Needs: an Applied Approach, seventh edition provides readers with a practical, step-by-step approach to learning about the complex procedures of the assessment process. Integrated cases help facilitate reader comprehension of difficult concepts. Practice exercises provide an opportunity for readers to monitor their progress.
