This book is designed towards mastering the CogAT from which many school districts identify gifted children for admissions into their gifted and talented programs. The book contains 9 lessons, one for each subtest. Each lesson consists of three main parts: Description of the question type, exercise questions, and answers and explanations. In addition, the book has 2 full-length practice tests with detailed explanations. It is recommended that you take the first practice test as a diagnostic test to understand your current level of expertise and in which area you need improvement. After completing the 9 lessons, use the second practice test to help improve your problem solving skills. There is no greater substitute than to study and practice. After completing any lesson or test, immediately use the answer key and explanations to check your answers. Review all answers. Take the time to carefully read the explanations of questions you got incorrect. If you find yourself continually missing the same type of questions, review the lesson that matches the same type of question again.

Designed to help students learn how to assess clients, conduct treatment planning, and evaluate client outcomes, Counseling Assessment and Evaluation addresses specific CACREP competencies. Incorporating case studies and examples, authors Joshua C. Watson and Brandé Flamez provide foundational knowledge for sound formal and informal assessments, cover ethical and legal considerations in assessment, describe basic statistical concepts, highlight the domains in which assessments are commonly used (intelligence, aptitude, achievement, personality, career, etc.), and provide strategies for integrating assessment data when working with clients. “Watson and Flamez have captured the essence of the assessment process in their new book. Through rich case illustrations and the authors’ deep knowledge of the subject, readers are provided the most current trends and reflections on the assessment process.” —Bill McHenry, Texas A&M University–Texarkana “The text is very straightforward and easy to read. It encourages students to apply what they are learning through case illustrations and guided practice exercises.” —Wendy Killam, Stephen F. Austin State University “Watson and Flamez provide the reader with an engaging discussion of the fundamentals of counseling assessment and evaluation. ?—Mark W. Dewalt, Winthrop University “The case illustrations and the practice exercises are exceptional and go a long way toward making the material accessible. Case examples in the body of the text are also well done.” —Patricia Andersen, Midwestern State University

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,0, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Institut für Romanische Sprachen und Literaturen), Veranstaltung: Pronominalkonstruktionen im Spanischen und Portugiesischen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Spanische verfügt über ein von der maskulinen Form verschiedenes, neutrales Subjektpronomen ello. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, den Gebrauch von ello im gesprochenen Spanisch der Dominikanischen Republik zu beschreiben und zu analysieren. Dabei soll der Frage nachgegangen werden, ob es sich bei ello um ein Expletivum oder einen Diskursmarker handelt. Dafür ist es zunächst wichtig zu wissen, welchen Status ello im Standardspanisch hat. Die spanischen Personalpronomen werden durch die grammatischen Kategorien Person, Numerus, Genus und Kasus modifiziert. Durchgängig ausgeprägt ist dabei der Kasus sowie der Person- und Numerusbezug. Im Zentrum dieser Arbeit steht das neutrale Personalpronomen ello (rechte Seite), welches im heutigen Standardspanisch wenn überhaupt nur noch in der Schriftsprache vorkommt. Wie bereits durch das obige Zitat von Henríquez Ureña deutlich wird, kann ello nur noch als linguistisches Fossil betrachtet werden. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass dieses Pronomen ello in der Varietät des dominikanischen Spanisch gesund munter zu sein scheint. Neben seinem relativ häufigen Auftreten kommt hinzu, dass es teilweise in Verwendungsweisen zu finden ist, die es im Standardspanisch nicht gibt und offensichtlich auch noch nie gegeben hat. Um dieses Phänomen genauer zu untersuchen gliedert sich die vorliegende Arbeit in fünf Abschnitte. Im folgenden Abschnitt wird die Distribution expletiver Pronomen genauer betrachtet. Dabei ist es wichtig, eine Unterscheidung von Null-Subjekt- und Nicht-Null-Subjekt-Sprachen zu machen. Abschnitt drei widmet sich ausführlich dem Auftreten und der Verwendung von ello im dominikanischen Spanisch. Um seine grammatikalische Verwendung genau bestimmen zu kennen, werden diesbezüglich zwei Ansätze vorgestellt. Zunächst die Studie von Toribio, welche ello als Expletivum analysiert und die These vertritt, dass im dominikanischen Spanisch zwei grammatikalische Systeme miteinander konkurrieren. Im fünften Absatz wird die Untersuchung von Hinzelin & Kaiser analysiert, in deren Kontext ello als Diskursmarker betrachtet wird. Abschließend werden beide Ansätze miteinander verglichen und die Ergebnisse zusammengeführt.

Teaching IS rocket science—and you are the pilot! The authors reinforce what teachers already know—test preparation worksheets and drill-and-kill activities do not make children into lifelong readers. This book’s conscientious approach to reading instruction combines an insider perspective on the development of high-stakes tests with classroom experience in achieving successful reading outcomes at the elementary and secondary levels. Their research-based methodology is based on five key components: Aligning instruction to the state or national core standards Using formative assessment Connecting units to real-world contexts Motivating students effectively Holding on to best practice in literacy instruction

The field of gifted education is characterized by a confusing array of perspectives concerning such fundamental issues as definition, philosophy, curriculum, social and emotional development, and underserved populations. The mission of this book is to provide a coherent framework that instructors and service providers can use in planning effective programs, providing appropriate counseling services, and evaluating programs for the gifted. Most sections are organized around fundamental issues confronting the field and follow a common structure: an introductory chapter that provides historical and theoretical background and organizing questions followed by several point-of-view chapters written by experts that provide varied perspectives on the topic at hand. Distinguishing Features Comprehensive Coverage – The book's forty-five manageable-length chapters cover the full range of topics that must be considered in planning programs and services for gifted students both within and outside of school. Coherent Structure – Section introductions provide background information and organizing questions to guide chapter authors who provide varying views of the issue at hand. The emphasis is not on the "right way" or the "wrong way" (except when clearly documented bad practice is discussed), but on how best practice stems from well-informed and logical decision-making. Decision Making Focus – The book's introductory chapter addresses the need for a clearly developed and consistently applied set of values to guide decision making. Likewise, each section introduction includes a decision making framework regarding some aspect of educating, counseling, or parenting gifted students. This book is appropriate for introductory level courses in gifted education or courses in program development and planning. It is also suitable for school personnel responsible for making program planning decisions in the area of gifted education and for academic libraries with holdings in this area.
