The GPS-IEP Seven Step Process in Creating Standards-based IEPs Step 1: Consider the Child You must know about the child before you begin to write IEP goals and objectives. This information about the child should include the following: interests, learning styles, strengths, needs, immediate future plans, long-range educational outcomes or goals, parents’ concerns, relevant medical information, safety information, and background information. Step 2: Examine classroom data to decide where the child is functioning in relation to the standards and grade-level benchmarks and indicators. You must know the academic content standards, benchmarks, and grade-level indicators for what is expected of a child in their particular grade. Next, review any data on the child from classroom-based assessments and recent state and district-wide assessments to determine where the child is functioning in relation to those standards, benchmarks, and grade-level indicators.
Unit 3 Ethical Use of Assessment Jennifer Morales COUN5106 – Assessment, Tests, and Measures May 2nd, 2013 Dr. Kim Desmond Unit 3 Ethical Use of Assessments This paper will discuss an assessment instrument that is used by school counselors during professional practice, the Child and Adolescent Risk Evaluation (CARE).

This paper will also discuss practical use of the Child and Adolescent Risk Evaluation (CARE) within school counseling.

ELFN 6763 Philosophies of Education Alternative Portfolio Assessments for Students with Disabilities The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 calls for states to use standardized end-of- year tests to determine whether students, and thus the schools which they attend, have made adequate progress. Students with disabilities, including those with severe disabilities, have not been ignored in this process. Most students with moderate and severe disabilities are assessed through alternative portfolios. The alternate portfolio showcases student work where educators can assess learning across life domain activities in a comprehensive way. It represents performance-based evaluation, using a multidisciplinary approach, and use of holistic scoring.
