Abstract

This chapter addresses assessment of students with disabilities. It begins with brief analyses of purposes of assessment, especially with regard to their uses in classrooms. Next, it discusses both formal and informal assessment techniques, focuses on performance-based assessment, authentic assessment, portfolios, self-assessment, response to intervention, and teacher evaluation and/or accountability. Embedded in these discussions are implications of assessments on students with disabilities.
