> stream Common Pitfalls that Preclude Best Practice Assessment. I did have the pleasure of meeting Feuerstein in Australia. I’d be sure to provide a link to your site. They are downloadable too so can be used worldwide (well English only at present). In this article, discover practical tools to engage students of all levels in meaningful self-assessment. After someone is referred to the learning disability team one or more of the team will complete an assessment. And yet, when I search the special education literature online, I find virtually nothing dedicated to identifying strengths in these students. Teachers, learn how to test the true knowledge of your students. Anyway, thanks for sharing, and all best wishes in your work.
