Kazdin (1985) likewise pointed to the known constellations of behavior, which suggest that focus on single targets for assessment or remediation would be inappropriate. Kratochwill (1985b) has discussed the way in which target behaviors are selected through behavioral consultation. He noted the issues related to using ver- 31 32 A C A DEMIC S KILL S P ROBLEM S bal behavior as the source for target behavior selection as problematic. In addition, Weist, Ollendick, and Finney (1991) noted that for children, in particular, there is limited use of empirically based procedures that incorporate their perspective as well in the selection of appropriate targets for intervention.

Selecting Targets for Assessment We (Lentz & Shapiro, 1985) have listed several basic assumptions in assessing academic problems. Each assumption is consistent with a behavioral approach to assessment and recognizes the important differences between assessment for academic problems and assessment for behavioral–Â�emotional problems (in which behavioral methods more typically are used). ╇ Assessment must reflect an evaluation of the behavior in the natural environment. Behavioral assessment emphasizes the need for collecting data under conditions that most closely approximate the natural conditions under which the behavior originally occurred.

In their model, student skills within grades are assessed by teacher-made Choosing Targets for Assessment and Remediation 45 tests. These measures offer remediation recommendations for skill development, and students are reassessed on these criterion-�referenced tests following the implementation of an instructional technique designed to improve the identified skill deficit. Gickling and Havertape (1981), Gickling and Rosenfield (1995), and Gickling and Thompson (1985) describe a subskill mastery model based on principles of controlling the difficulty level of material presented to students during the instructional process.
