47: Exercise 5: Assessing with Given Information




  • As the only special education teacher at your school, you have been assigned the job of assessing all students in order to determine who requires additional attention in the area of mathematics. This is what you know:
    1. About 15-16% of students require additional assistance in mathematics
    2. A widely accepted test has already been developed to assess special needs in mathematics
    3. This requires a lot of time for administration and scoring and also requires a per test fee of $25 due to the copyright restrictions
    4. You will be testing about 100 students every year
    5. You’ve been given an initial budget of $500 and a budget of $200 for each year after that
