Abstract

In addition to ensuring that all students with disabilities are provided a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) in a least restrictive environment (LRE), the 2004 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) reiterates the importance of school personnel using appropriate assessment processes (Overton, 2006). Specifically, this law mandates that schools ensure that proper assessment procedures encompassing a variety of assessment techniques are followed when determining eligibility and planning instruction (IDEA, 2004). These measures were implemented to decrease inappropriate labeling and to ensure appropriate performance data were used to plan effective instructional programs based on the student’s strengths and weaknesses.
