    Hi Everyone!
    Does anybody have any guidance on passing the WEST-E for Special Education? I can't seem to find any study guides anywhere and it doesn't seem like a test that you can "wing."

    Washington uses a mix of its own tests and Pearson's NES series. If this is a Washington test, the WEST site should have a framework for it that you can download in pdf format: you can use the framework as a guide to terms to look up on the Internet. If this is an NES test, there should be a list of test specifications within or as a downloadable document on the Web page. In either case, you can use the framework or list as a source of terms and concepts to look up on the Internet, or in whatever textbooks you may have from your teacher licensure program. Looking up associations of teachers of special education may also be helpful: their Web sites may have links to sites that lay out good special education practice. The Washington state department of education may have helpful material as well that gives guidance to special ed teachers. In addition, you might see what's out there for other states' tests that cover similar content.
