Summary

The Test Resource Guide (TRG) is designed to provide professionals in the New York City (New York) Public Schools with a compendium of assessment devices for use in decision making; specifically, determining eligibility for special education services, planning an instructional program, and charting progress. The introduction to TRG describes: (1) testing procedures; (2) the psycho-educational model of assessment adopted by the New York City Board of Education; (3) standards for achieving quality assessments; and (4) the uses, development, and organization of TRG. This guide may be used as part of the assessment planning phase to help select appropriate tests, as a tool for increasing professional awareness of available tests across a number of domains, and as a staff development tool. Approximately 340 pages of test reviews and information are presented. Test reviews include the following items: intended purpose of the test, description, norm data, reliability, validity, and a section containing special alerts, effective uses, and comments. A wide range of tests are reviewed: tests of academic functioning (achievement batteries, readiness, reading, language arts, mathematics), adaptive behavior, cognitive functioning, communication and language, perceptual and motor functioning, social-emotional assessment, bilingual-limited English proficiency, and vocational assessment. State and federal laws and regulations are discussed. Chancellor's regulations are appended, as well as a publisher's directory, glossary, and bibliography. (MDE)
