The ______ is responsible for determining how a student with a disability will be involved in state and district wide assessments.
Answer: IEP TeamPage: 36Reason: Students with a disability ARE included in all state and district wide assessments. The IEP is responsible for determining whether the individual may be exempt from the standardized state assessments. However, IDEA still requires an alternate assessment to be given which serves the same purpose of accountability and decision making.
The third generation of inclusive practice includes:a. Curriculum mastery b.
Parent involvementc. Methods of teachingd. A and Ce. None of the above
D. A & C (Curriculum mastery & Methods of Teaching)The third generation does not focus on where a student is being taught.
Instead, the focus is on “what’ and “how”. Often the IEP needs to consider the fact that students with a disability may need to learn other skills that are not provided by the general education curriculum, while still holding them accountable to high expectation in the general curriculum. How the teacher addresses the needs may be tricky but definitely needs to be considered. Teachers need to focus on what the student is being taught, and the combination of which it is being presented to them.
1. The two major characteristics of intellectual disability are limitation in _________ and _________.
Intellectual functioning and adaptive behaviorReason: Intelligence refers to a student’s general mental capability for problem solving, memory, thinking abstractly, and generalizing knowledge.
The major issue though is that the cues, expectations, environment, and people differ from school, home, and public places. Effective strategies that can be used include teaching students to quietly repeat back information or instructions to themselves, verbal or physical prompts, and teaching functionally curricular content in settings where they are typically used.
2. Implementing a homework log that requires students to check off an assignment when they have completed it as well as marking the grade they received is a form of which student-directed learning strategy?
Self-monitoring One of the most widely utilized student-directed learning strategies involves teaching students to monitor their own behavior. Self-monitoring strategies teach students to collect data on their progress of achieving a particular (educational) goal, and enhancing their overall self-care skills. They can do this by completing a checklist, or log, like mentioned above.
3. True or FalseIndividuals with autism use their repetitive behaviors as ways to communicate boredom or agitation.
Answer: TruePage: 304Reason: Students with autism have a broad range of language abilities, including nonverbal communication. Repetitive behaviors are definitely one of ways that students communicate with us, and should not be seen as misbehaviors. While they do have potential to interfere with the learning process, we should not focus on reducing their repetitive behaviors.
Instead, teachers and parents should concentrate on increasing their appropriate communication and social skills.
4. Students with epilepsy have _______ intelligence and academic achievement than students without epilepsy.
Answer: LowerPage: 341Reason: Since students with epilepsy experience absence seizures, they face a greater challenge when it comes to focusing on the teacher and in the classroom. In return, their academic performance drops.
In addition, medications can cause severe side effects that affect their attention span, energy, and other school-related behaviors. Students can also experience emotional and behavioral issues as well. Students who have a negative attitude towards their diagnosis may experience dissatisfaction with family relationships and suffer from depression.
When teaching individuals with a traumatic brain injury how to make decisions, which of the following is not one of the recommended steps?a. Identifying optionsb. Identifying consequences o alternativesc.
Consider only logical optionsd. Integrating values and consequences to make decisions
Answer: C Consider only logical optionsPage: 383Reason: Teaching students with TBI to make decisions involves multiple steps. The first important step is teaching students to identify their options. Students need to know what their options are.
Second, students need to be aware of the outcomes that their options can bring. Students with TBI tend to act impulsively, so we should teach them to think before they act. We don’t want student to only separate moral and logical thoughts, instead we want students to integrate everything into their final decision making. They should integrate should integrate value and consequences; choose one option based on multiple factors considered.
