SPED-302 Diagnostic Assessment

Both qualitative and quantitative assessment procedures are studied in diagnosing learning problems.

Strategies to accommodate special needs students are included. Candidates are expected to be able to construct a variety of tests, as well as develop authentic evaluative materials (i.e. portfolio), as well as administer and interpret achievement, diagnostic, and intelligence tests. Candidates develop a personal philosophy of assessment. (Course taken in lieu of EDUC 301 for Special Education majors only.)
