Understanding Psychoeducational Evaluations: Using Testing Results to Make Educational Decisions
Tuesday, December 6, 2016 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Jennifer Lindstrom, Associate Professor of Special Education in the College of Education at the University of Georgia, will focus on understanding and interpreting psychoeducational evaluations for students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. She will discuss important considerations in the accommodation selection process, including requests on high-stakes tests (SAT, ACT, etc.). She will offer recommendations for making sound instructional and testing decisions based on information obtained from evaluations. Lindstrom will present case studies to give participants the opportunity to practice applying what they learn about assessment principles and procedures.
