Grading Exceptional and Struggling Learners with Dr. LeeAnn Jung & Dr. Thomas R. Guskey
"The model presented in this book is the best one I know for approaching the difficult task of grading exceptional and struggling learners. It makes sense, and it honors principles of learning, instruction, and validity of measurement. Examples show how the model applies to a variety of struggling students. The book is clear and readable. I recommend it for teachers at all levels."
