Setting the standard for professional resources, the well-known ASSESSMENT IN SPECIAL AND INCLUSIVE EDUCATION, 11th Edition, offers basic assessment information along with a handbook-style reference to actual reviews of the tests most administered in K-12 schools. Reflecting changes in the field of assessment, the new Eleventh Edition is more student friendly than ever. Streamlined, succinct, and completely current, the text takes a new dual approach that teaches readers how to do assessments correctly as well as how to use assessment information to boost student competence. The text continues its thorough discussions on the importance of analyzing behaviors sampled by tests and on appropriate norming, reliability and validity. It also offers the latest test reviews and information, features a fresh new design, gives special attention to diversity issues, and increases coverage of legal concerns. Teaching is increasingly complex. School populations are extremely diverse in their language, knowledge of U.S. culture, and academic skills. Assessment is more critical than ever. ASSESSMENT IN SPECIAL AND INCLUSIVE EDUCATION equips readers with the knowledge and tools to assess the skills and abilities of their students effectively and efficiently. It teaches those who assess students to broaden their labors from efforts designed to make predictions about students’ lives to efforts designed to make a difference in the lives of the students they serve. The result is improved educational outcomes. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

The contributors to Translation and Medicine address several broad aspects of medical translation, from the cultural/historic framework of the language of medicine to pragmatic considerations of register and terminology. Their articles highlight some of the contributions translation has made to medical science and addresses some of the questions raised by those who escort the advances of medicine across language and cultural barriers and those who train the next generation of medical translators. Section 1 covers some “Historical and Cultural Aspects” that have characterized the language of medicine in Japan and Western Europe, with special emphasis on French and Spanish; Section 2 opens some vistas on “The Medical Translator in Training” with two specific university-level programs in Switzerland and in Spain, as well as an in-depth analysis of who makes the better medical translator: the medically knowledgeable linguist or the linguistically knowledgeable medical professional; and Section 3 looks at several facets of “The Translator at Work,” with discussions of the translator-client relationship and the art of audience-specific translating, an insider’s view of the Translation Unit of the National Institutes of Health, and a detailed study of online medical terminology resources.
