Notes

Publisher describes these materials as supplementary, rather than a full curriculum. The "Quick-Screen" feature provides an overview of prior knowledge to aid in determining where assessment needs to begin. Rating scales assist with evaluating subjective items, such as aptitude or attitude. Supplemental and Related Skill Sequences list additional, higher-level skills and serve as a guide for curriculum planning.
