Behavioral Assessment in Schools: Theory, Research, and Clinical Foundations
Edward Steven Shapiro, Thomas R. Kratochwill
Guilford Press, Jun 13, 2000 - Education - 522 pages
The assessment of children and adolescents from a behavioral perspective has evolved into a state-of-the-art practice among school professionals. Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this landmark text was the first to address systematically the issues involved in developing behavioral assessment strategies for educational--rather than clinical--settings. The theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of a wide range of methods are discussed, and their strengths and limitations for assessing emotional/behavioral difficulties and academic skills problems are evaluated. Bringing the field fully up to date, the second edition incorporates important new instruments, refinements of observational strategies, computer applications, and emerging concepts in assessment. Many chapters have new authorship, and entirely new chapters deal with legal and professional issues, decision-making processes in educational diagnosis, culturally sensitive assessment practices, and curriculum-based assessment of academic skills problems. NOTE: Practitioners planning to implement the techniques described in this volume may also wish to purchase the companion book, Conducting School-Based Assessments of Child and Adolescent Behavior, which features case illustrations and detailed guidelines for practice.
