NCEO Synthesis Reports: Outcome-Based Education: Its Relevance to State and National Decision Making (#9)

Part of the NCEO Synthesis Reports series.
Author(s)
Carol B. Massanari, Ph.D.

Description

This report was developed to propose a framework for applying an outcome-based approach throughout the education system for students with disabilities. The needs of three major levels of the system were examined: local, state, and national. It is argued that it is necessary to define different uses for the term "outcome" in order to achieve consensus and understanding. Matching uses with the needs of the specific levels of the system will help clarify communications and facilitate the process of identifying expected outcomes.
