Educational Assessments I | EDTH.X303

Assessment is critical for determining what we’ve learned, how we learn, and how to best target and bolster instructional approaches as we move ahead. This course introduces the assessment tools and procedures frequently used in educational therapy settings. Participants will gain experience using specific assessment instruments. They will have access to a limited number of assessment instruments which they may use for practice. Testing is limited to educational assessment tools, which are widely used by educational therapists and do not require credentialing as a school psychologist or licensing as a clinical or educational psychologist. The course offers insight into how to administer tests used by educational therapists and how to interpret psycho-educational evaluation reports.
