This text combines curriculum and instruction studies with assessment, which is very popular in higher education today. New laws in special education focus on assessment, and the new tools and forms provided here. Strategies and practical applications for teaching special education are combined in one source. The theories behind teaching exceptional learners and the assessment applications to practice it are merged for the special education major and the elementary education major taking their one mandatory introductory course.
