NCEO Technical Reports: Experts' Opinions about the Appropriateness and Feasibility of National Math Standards (#4)
Share this page
This year 1993 report presents survey results on the appropriateness and feasibility of the Curriculum and Evaluation Standards published by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in relation to math instruction for students with disabilities. The study surveyed eleven experts in the areas of mathematics education, special education, and assessment. Results showed that the major factor determining opinions about the Standards was the respondents' basic belief about the appropriate form of math instruction for students with disabilities. Little agreement on the appropriateness and feasibility of the Standards was found beyond the elementary grade levels. A discussion of the implications for the math education of students with disabilities is included.
