Assessment is an essential component of educating and supporting students with disabilities and gathering assessment data from multiple sources (i.e., informal and formal) helps educators in identifying the individual strengths and needs of each student. Educators use assessment for a variety of purposes including individual student IEP development, designing and evaluating instruction and monitoring student progress. Context, culture, and linguistic factors are important considerations when selecting and using assessment with students with disabilities in order to best minimize the potential for disproportionate representation of particular student groups in identification for special education, discipline and specific disability categories.
