This chapter focuses on the individualized academic assessment of reading, written language, and mathematics for students with special needs enrolled in preschool to postsecondary settings. The chapter is organized into six parts. The first part focuses on individually administered standardized academic assessments and includes a brief discussion of administration, types of scores, and test formats and demands. The second presents an overview of curriculum-based measures and assessments. The third reviews special considerations and concerns regarding the assessment of certain types of students (e.g., students with specific learning disabilities). The remaining three parts address the assessment of reading, written language, and mathematics.
