The goal of this book is to provide comprehensive and practical knowledge of relevant legal issues that affect the administration of public schools. It will allow educators to effectively perform their duties within the boundaries of constitutional, statutory, and case law. It is also designed to be easy to understand for those with little or no legal background. Selected court cases address issues most relevant to education. It includes recent landmark court decisions in areas such as religion, student rights, student and faculty disabilities, and classroom harassment. School violence is discussed comprehensively. The book begins with an index of major legal issues related to relevant issues, allowing the reader to ascertain the legal sources of authority related to those particular topics. Educational leaders are provided with pertinent information to direct their day-to-day decisions. The primary focus is not on state law since this varies from state to state. Appendices include constitutional provisions, selected and annotated federal statutes, and an abbreviated glossary. It will enable educators to perform their legal duties and to meet the requirements of reasonableness as they move their organizations toward their goals. (Contains 279 references.) (RKJ)

Multifaceted Assessment in Early Childhood is ideal for those on upper-division undergraduate courses and first-level graduate courses in early childhood education assessment. The book covers the various measures used in a range of assessment dimensions, and includes valuable information regarding young children with special needs and English Language Learners, which has rarely been touched upon in other textbooks. The chapters are focused on student accessibility and include practical applications of key concepts. Features and benefits: Covers a range of assessment concepts, including - Formative (uses feedback from learning to adapt teaching) -Summative (i.e. tests, quizzes) -Authentic (focuses on complex/deeper tasks) -Standardized (STAR, SAT) Includes coverage of assessment for English language learners and children with special needs -- topics that are not provided enough coverage in other books (including Wortham, McAfee, Puckett and Mindes). Wright's writing style grabs and engages the reader in the topic. Two of our reviewers who use Wortham specifically cited Wright's writing style as a reason they would adopt our book. A McAfee reviewer is likely to switch for the same reason.

This text presents a uniquely practical approach to the topic of Assessment in Special Education.The authors organize the material into a "real-world story," by having each part and chapter of the book reflect the linear chronology of the assessment process used in schools. Unlike other books, this book is organized chronologically to present the overall process in a "straight line" - a practical and useful pedagogy in itself for the novice teacher. The text provides the practical tools necessary for a new teacher to understand the process of assessment in schools and then learn how to put it all together. It provides future special educators comprehensive coverage of the latest tests and evaluation procedures for all areas of exceptionality - for every age group - for students with mild, moderate and severe disabilities.
