Assessing the educational and cognitive needs of individuals with mental retardation is a very complex process. An appropriately chosen assessment can be a highly effective tool that can be used to measure the progress of our students. The teacher must select assessment procedures carefully and make judgments regarding the main areas to assess and then determine which areas of performance need to be tested further. Effective use of the results will allow teachers to design instruction and lessons specifically to fit the needs of their students. Where does the teacher start?
