Summary

The project titled "Evaluating the non-English Speaking Handicapped" was established to research existing evaluation instruments in language other than English, validate the tests as well as additional translations where needed, and develop a procedural manual for distribution to utilize in evaluating non-English speaking handicapped students. The procedural manual, which is still under development, will consist of information on the following: issues involved in nonbiased assessment of non-English speaking students; assessment materials available which are validated in other languages; selection of appropriate evaluation personnel, instruments, and techniques for specific area of exceptionality; interpretation considerations in various circumstances; and forms and notification devices in other languages. Some initial procedural recommendations will address referral, determination of primary language, selection of assessment approach, and test interpretation. (SBH)
