Professionals provide a quick and simple test that covers basic skills and gathers additional information that may detect a student who is in need of a more comprehensive evaluation and possible support of special education services
Professionals use information from a variety of sources, conduct an observation to study classroom performance and behaviors and then refer for further evaluations
This step necwssitates a coprehensive evaluation by professionals to deremine the student's disablity and possible eligibiliyt for special education services. Timelines are imposed and requirments for the types of measurment tools must align w/ federal law.
