Table of Contents of this book

Evaluation of students with visual impairments is a complex, multi-faceted process of gathering information using appropriate tools & techniques. Informal evaluation should be considered an essential supplement to the use of formal measures and published instruments. In order to determine curricular focus and plan effective instructional programming for students, the staff must know a student's levels of functioning in all areas of academic and unique need. By conducting appropriate evaluations, students' specific needs related to accessing the general curriculum, as well as the areas identified in the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) can be identified.

EVALS is a 5-part set which is contained in a convenient file box with a handle and snap tight buckle. It will include:

  • Two books of evaluations for the ECC areas
  • One book of evaluations for academic subject areas for Practical Academics and Basic Skills students
  • Independent Living Skills Assessment and On-going Evaluation
  • TAPS Comprehensive Assessment and On-going Evaluation

Many of the evaluations have been aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
