Description: This course examines both formal (published, norm-referenced) and informal (criterion referenced, curriculum-based, observational) measures used to: 1) screen, identify, and classify students by disability category, 2) identify students' strengths and impediments to learning, 3) design and plan appropriate interventions, 4) continuously monitor students' progress, and 5) adapt instructional programs appropriately. The benefits and limitations of each type of measure for these purposes will be examined, along with techniques and procedures for developing, validating, and interpreting informal measures in conjunction with information provided from formal tests.
