    Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act 2004
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA) 2004. This act allows schools to use the Response to Intervention (RTI) model to identify students with special needs. The RTI model is a multi-tiered approach that involves providing interventions and supports to students who are struggling academically or behaviorally, and monitoring their progress. By using the RTI model, schools can identify students who may need special education services and provide them with the appropriate support. The IDEIA 2004 ensures that students with disabilities receive a free and appropriate public education.

  • 7. 

    LRE - Least Restrictive Environment is the setting most like that of students without disabilities that also meet each child's educational needs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the concept of Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) aims to provide students with disabilities an educational setting that closely resembles that of their peers without disabilities. It ensures that each child's individual educational needs are met while promoting inclusion and integration into mainstream classrooms to the maximum extent possible. This approach recognizes the importance of providing appropriate support and accommodations to students with disabilities, while also fostering their social and academic development alongside their non-disabled peers.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Continuum of Services means that a full range of services options for students with disabilities will be provided by the school in a full inclusion setting in the general education classroom.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer, which is False, is that the statement is incorrect. Continuum of Services does not necessarily mean that all services for students with disabilities will be provided in a full inclusion setting in the general education classroom. It refers to a range of services that can be provided to meet the individual needs of students with disabilities, which can include a combination of services in both general education and special education settings.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    A child no longer has to meet the two-point discrepancy between ability and achievement to qualify for special education services.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the requirement for a two-point discrepancy between ability and achievement is no longer necessary for a child to qualify for special education services. This means that even if there is not a significant difference between a child's ability and their actual performance, they can still be eligible for special education support. This change allows for a more inclusive approach to identifying and providing services for students who may benefit from additional assistance in their education.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    In the RTI process, which tier gives an universal screener to all students?

    • A.

      Tier 1

    • B.

      Tier 2

    • C.

      Tier 3

    Correct Answer
    A. Tier 1
    Explanation
    In the RTI (Response to Intervention) process, Tier 1 is the first level of support provided to all students. It involves the implementation of a universal screener, which is a tool or assessment used to identify students who may be at risk or in need of additional support. This universal screener is administered to all students in order to gather data and determine if any students require further intervention or assistance. Therefore, Tier 1 is the tier that gives a universal screener to all students in the RTI process.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    At which RTI tier is it typical for a small group of students to receive additional instruction once a week that focus on reinforcing skills taught to all students.

    • A.

      Tier 1

    • B.

      Tier 2

    • C.

      Tier 3

    Correct Answer
    B. Tier 2
    Explanation
    In Response to Intervention (RTI) model, Tier 2 is the correct answer. At this tier, a small group of students who need additional support receive extra instruction once a week to reinforce the skills taught to all students. This tier provides targeted interventions to address specific learning needs and prevent academic difficulties from escalating further.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    At which RTI tier is the most intense intervention provided and a child can be referred for special education?

    • A.

      Tier 1

    • B.

      Tier 2

    • C.

      Tier 3

    Correct Answer
    C. Tier 3
    Explanation
    At Tier 3 of the Response to Intervention (RTI) model, the most intense intervention is provided and a child can be referred for special education. This tier is typically reserved for students who have not responded to the interventions provided at Tier 1 and Tier 2. At Tier 3, students receive individualized and intensive interventions to address their specific learning needs. If these interventions are not successful in improving the student's progress, they may be referred for a comprehensive evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Response to Intervention identifies one group of students in the fall that need extra help and those students are the only ones who move up and down the tiers, as their needs change.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Response to Intervention (RTI) does not only focus on one group of students in the fall. RTI is a multi-tiered approach that involves identifying and supporting students who are struggling academically or behaviorally. It includes three tiers of interventions, with increasing levels of support, and students can move up and down the tiers based on their individual needs and progress. Therefore, it is not limited to one group of students but rather is a flexible and individualized approach to meeting students' needs.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which of the following are reasons that children may not respond to interventions?

    • A.

      Environment is not conducive to learning

    • B.

      Program being implemented ineffectively by the teacher

    • C.

      Method is not effective and a different approach is needed

    • D.

      Level of instruction is not a good match

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Environment is not conducive to learning
    B. Program being implemented ineffectively by the teacher
    C. Method is not effective and a different approach is needed
    D. Level of instruction is not a good match
    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that there are multiple reasons why children may not respond to interventions. One reason could be that the environment is not conducive to learning, meaning that the surroundings or conditions in which the intervention is taking place are not suitable for the child to effectively engage and learn. Another reason could be that the program being implemented by the teacher is ineffective, indicating that the intervention itself may not be well-designed or executed. Additionally, the method being used may not be effective for the specific child, and a different approach may be needed. Lastly, the level of instruction may not be a good match for the child's needs, suggesting that the intervention may not be appropriately tailored to their abilities or learning style.

  • 15. 

    The goal of NCLB requiring 95% of students with disabilities participating in statewide assessments is to get schools to increase the performance of these students in essential knowledge and skills.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The goal of NCLB (No Child Left Behind) is to improve the performance of students with disabilities in essential knowledge and skills. Requiring 95% of these students to participate in statewide assessments is a way to ensure that schools are actively working towards this goal. By including a high percentage of students with disabilities in these assessments, schools are encouraged to provide appropriate support and accommodations to help these students succeed academically.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Families must wait until their child is school-age before they can get help if they believe their child has a disability.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because families do not have to wait until their child is school-age to seek help if they believe their child has a disability. Early intervention services are available for children from birth to age three, and special education services can be provided to children with disabilities as young as three years old. Waiting until the child is school-age may delay necessary interventions and support for the child's development and well-being.

    Explanation
    When a child with a disability reaches the age of 16, it is required to include a transition plan in their Individualized Education Program (IEP). This plan helps prepare the child for their post-secondary plans, such as further education, employment, or independent living. It outlines the specific goals, services, and supports needed to assist the child in transitioning successfully into adulthood.

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because not all RTI programs follow the exact same steps and procedures. While there may be some common elements or guidelines, each program can have its own specific processes and requirements. Therefore, it is incorrect to assume that all RTI programs are identical in their steps and procedures.

    Teachers should force second language learners to answer questions orally in class so they will practice their second language in a classroom setting.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Forcing second language learners to answer questions orally in class may not be an effective way to practice their second language. It can create unnecessary pressure and anxiety for the learners, which may hinder their ability to effectively communicate in the second language. Additionally, some learners may feel embarrassed or shy about speaking in front of others, further impeding their language practice. Instead, teachers should create a supportive and encouraging environment where learners feel comfortable and motivated to practice their second language voluntarily.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Parents have the right to request that their child be tested in their primary language when being evaluated for an Individualized Education Program (IEP). This is important because testing a child in their primary language ensures that the assessment accurately reflects their abilities and provides a fair evaluation. By allowing testing in their primary language, parents can ensure that their child's unique needs and strengths are properly identified and addressed in the development of their IEP.
