Diagnostic case scenario | Special education
Each student who participates in the eligibility process for special education services is unique. The Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team (MET) has the responsibility of selecting the appropriate formal and informal assessments that best measure identified student strengths and needs. Teachers must possess the knowledge of the characteristics of informal and formal assessments to fully participate as an active member of the MET and subsequently guide educational decision-making.
Review the “Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team (MET) Case Study.”
Based on your “Diagnostic Assessments Graphic Organizer” assignment from Topic 1, determine which types of assessments should be administered. Identify a minimum of three assessments and justify your decision in a 500-750 word response. Explain how the validity and reliability of each assessment supports your decision and how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
Support your findings with 2-3 scholarly resources.
