1. Rationale for Evaluating Student Participation
This chapter will discuss the need for understanding why we are making the shift in our evaluations in order to embrace this change.
2. Begin and End With Participation
This chapter will discuss the shifting to participation-based evaluations, which facilitates goals and intervention that are focused on participation, and is more likely to result in participation-based outcomes, i.e. student participation in natural school contexts (occupational performance).
3. Key Components of Participation-Based Evaluations
In this chapter, participants will learn the ten step evaluation process and identify essential questions to ask teachers, learn how to complete a contextual observation that generates data, and create a hypothesis that guides selection of evaluation methods and tools to evaluate student access to and participation in their educational program.
4. Communicating Evaluation Results
This chapter covers key features designed to shift the written evaluation report and oral evaluation reporting at the meeting to center on student participation issues rather than underlying performance skills.
