Assessing Individuals With Disabilities in Educational, Employment, and Counseling Settings
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Assessing Individuals With Disabilities in Educational, Employment, and Counseling Settings is an indispensable reference for testing professionals as they face the challenge of how best to assess and test people with disabilities. The book begins with a review of the legal and psychometric issues that must be considered. Next the contributors describe frequently used testing accommodations, documentation of accommodations, and how to report scores when accommodations are used. The contributors then cover issues that are of special concern in clinical and counseling settings, in educational settings, and in assessment for employment, certification, and licensing. Throughout the volume the authors emphasize equity as the basis for accommodations. Because approximately twenty percent of the United States population has some type of disability, the information contained here will prove an invaluable reference for psychologists, counselors, educators, employers, test makers, and testing professionals.
