Training teachers for the severely and profoundly retarded: An accountability model
Education and the Training of the Mentally Retarded
It is the opinion of the authors that the best way to solve these problems is to confront them daily. This confrontation can take place while maintaining fairness in grading practices for trainees, if current measurement and evaluation limitations are kept firmly in mind. Due to the increased precision required in teaching the severely and profoundly retarded, it is imperative that professionals in teacher education begin developing working models for accountability. With the implementation of such models along with continuous evaluation and modification through experience and research, many problems in teacher training that exist today may be alleviated.
