>>>Authentic Assessment of the Child with Special Needs

Authentic Assessment of the Child with Special Needs


New product


This book is intended primarily for special education teachers who need a solid grounding on authentic assessment as a crucial competency that has to be mastered to deliver quality instruction to children with special needs.

  • The first part of the book introduces the concept of Authentic Assessment - its important principles, varying perspectives and alternative strategies.
  • The second part allows the reader to go through the process of authentic assessment step-by-step using an actual child for case study.   As the assessment unfolds, the reader gets to compile the output after every chapter eventually leading to data integration, synthesis, and writing of the authentic assessment report.
  • The last part of the book contains the results of an actual qualitative study in a community-based setting on early detection of disability, reflecting the application of authentic assessment amidst the realities faced by many Filipino families who lack the knowledge and resources to avail of a proper assessment.

Following the OBE approach, each chapter starts with the learning outcomes and ends with a summary, case study, key terms, and discussion questions.
