The following are some of the tips that may be employed when writing a comprehensive Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team (MET) report. First, ensure that the report is written in past tense. Secondly, ensure that all paragraph headings are bold, underlined, or italicized. This makes it easy to locate an area of interest. Thirdly, ensure that all sections in the report are separated and, lastly, ensure that the report is written using complete sentences (Tassoni, 2003).
To prepare a MET report, a special education teacher should strive to ensure that the parents of the students are granted an opportunity to be part of the evaluation meeting. The teacher should also incorporate the input of all parties, i.e., other parents and teachers, to avoid any form of racial or cultural segregation that may impede the student’s eligibility. When a reader peruses the MET report, he or she should be in a position to establish whether or not a student qualifies for special education and the steps the teachers will take to ensure that the student is granted these services. In conclusion, the report should inform the reader of specific reasons why the evaluation is taking place.
