 Discussion  – Informal Assessments

In the lecture, we discussed formal and informal assessments that are beneficial for students with disabilities.  Many of the assessments we discussed are utilized to obtain baseline data and weekly progress monitoring.  Lastly, we discussed how the assessments are utilized for transition planning (CO2, CO9, CO10).

Instructions:

· Discuss the advantages/disadvantages of Federal and State regulations mandating students with disabilities must be taught the same curriculum and assessments as nondisabled peers.  What historical events led to Congress mandating the change?  Include professional experience and historical citations.

· Explain formative assessment and how teachers utilize it to support the curriculum.  How can formative assessment be used as a teaching strategy to address student deficits?

Posts to the forum must adhere to the Discussion Board Rubric for the course.

Submission Instructions:

The Discussion Board is intended to foster a dynamic, flowing discussion that stems from students’ engagement with course materials, one another, and faculty.  Students are expected to ground their ideas and responses to one another in the course materials, in their own experience, and in additional outside references. 

Be sure to use and cite from  two  professional journal readings AND  one  assigned textbook reading in your initial post.  Conform to  as you write your response and create your source citations.  Be sure to also follow APA guidelines for your in-text citations.  (One of your professional journal readings should be from the module’s assigned readings; the second reading may come from either the assigned readings or your own research.)

·         Offer an opinion.

·         Make a suggestion.

·         Note a similarity or difference to your posting.

Return to the Discussion forum and read responses given to you by other students. Reflect upon what you learned and/or any insights you gained. Be sure to respond to any follow up questions from classmates. 

(Please note you must submit your initial post before you will be able to see any classmates’ posts.)
