Product description

Review

"The case study material included in the chapters I reviewed is very good and will be a tremendous help to bridging the gap from knowledge to application." "I think this version is much more reader-friendly, and like the way some items were summarized in table or bullet format rather than going into lengthy descriptions. ... When I used previous editions students complained about how lengthy and technical it was; but, I don't think such criticism would occur with this version."

About the Author

John Salvia is Professor Emeritus of Special Education at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Salvia is also the author of individual tests and numerous articles on the assessment of students with disabilities. His research focused on using assessment information to plan and evaluate educational programs and the impact of regular education reforms on assessment practices with exceptional students. Dr. Salvia remains interested in the extent to which students receive appropriate educational assessments. James E. Ysseldyke has been educating school psychologists and researchers for more than 35 years, and is now Professor Emeritus in the School Psychology Program at the University of Minnesota. He has advised and mentored more than 100 doctoral and Ed.S. students who have gone on to leadership positions in universities, school systems, government agencies, and research organizations. He has served the University of Minnesota as director of the Minnesota Institute for Research on Learning Disabilities, director of the National School Psychology Network, director of the National Center on Educational Outcomes, and associate dean for research. Dr. Ysseldyke's research and writing have focused on enhancing the competence of individual students and enhancing the capacity of systems to meet students' needs.
