Abstract

This study reports results of a survey of 63 special education teachers in a 13-county area of Northwestern Ohio. Teachers were asked to describe reports they typically receive as to types of information provided in several sections of the report. Teachers were also asked to rate sections of the report according to how useful these were for several purposes. Teachers receive a standard form of report including background data, test results, and general recommendations. Several areas to be targeted for self-assessment and development by psychologists interested in improving their report-writing are suggested.
