You are invited to become involved! Following is a selection of possible activities for this Objective

  • Prepare summary of frequently used tests.

  • Develop one-page fact sheets (PDF files) from literature reviews.

  • Assist with data collection during our research phase.



Objective's Overall Goals (as outlined in grant proposal):
  1. Conduct a needs assessment of the assessment best practices that have been empirically demonstrated to increase student academic (i.e., literacy, mathematics and science) achievement for all PK-12 students, hearing and/or d/hh. Outcome: Baseline empirical data.

  2. Conduct research concerning the use of the assessment best practices that have been empirically demonstrated to increase student academic (i.e., literacy, mathematics and science) achievement by master teachers (MT) of students who are d/hh and within d/hh teacher preparation programs. Outcome: Increase in the knowledge base.

  3. Disseminate resulting research and offer professional development support for its use to d/hh preservice teachers, their faculty, MT and the entire community of practice (CoP). Outcome: Increase in knowledge base and use of assessment best practices by d/hh preservice teachers, their faculty and MT.

  4. Conduct follow-up research on the impact of the disseminated information on d/hh teacher preparation programs and their preservice teachersí demonstration of assessment best practices competence. Outcome: Empirical evidence.

  5. Disseminate the follow-up research concerning the integration of the assessment best practices into d/hh teacher preparation programs and d/hh preservice teachersí demonstration of assessment best practices competence. Outcome: Increase in the magnitude of the grantís impact by assisting institutions of higher education (IHEs) in informing their faculty of the existence and use of assessment best practices that enhance the academic performance of students who are d/hh.
