(Cr: 3)
This is a process-oriented, hands-on course 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.
