Assessment of Special Educational Needs

  • Keith Horrell


The aim of this short article is to put into perspective my own thoughts on assessment methods used within a Special Educational Needs (SEN) design and technology department. Please don't stop reading if you don't teach in a special needs environment, as I think there are many relevant issues that need to be aired. I do not consider myself an expert in the field of assessment - I have read what seem to be hundreds of publications from a variety of sources - therefore the following is a basis to start discussion and by no means a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe.
