SPN 504 - Assessment and Educational Planning


This is a process-oriented, “hands-on” course. The course is designed to teach informal methods and procedures that can be used by special needs educators to study the educational functioning of elementary and middle school students. An ecological and a phenomenological perspective to assessment will provide the framework for this course. Observation, interview, curriculum-based measures, and authentic approaches will be used with a particular focus on literacy, math, learning style, and affective/cognitive factors related to learning. Activities, content, and materials are related to the current and relevant Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
