the differences between the Tasks and corresponding components)
Project Assignment
This project requires students to conduct a behavioral assessment and prepare a written behavioral

Students are expected to write clearly, express ideas concisely, and proofread papers for correct

1. Setting: School or Non-school (include district, community description, classroom
setting, teacher, racial/ethnic makeup, ELL, etc.)
2. Description of target student, including age, grade level, race/ethnicity, culturally
relevant information, and specific description of his exceptionalities (such as specific
