This course introduces the formal educational assessment process from start to finish. Discussion 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. Select assessment tools previewed in the previous assessment course (Educational Assessments I) are used for testing purposes, to generate a written report, and to verbally share findings. Participants will also learn how to interpret test results, reports, and findings from other allied professionals.
**NOTE** Participants will be required to find a volunteer school-aged student for the purposes of learning how to complete an educational assessment.
