Tuesday, February 26, 2019

  • PMD: 1
  • Skill Level: Advanced

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. describe lines of evidence for valid interpretation of rating scales and tests
  2. articulate a model for integrating findings
  3. write an effective interpretation of findings from multiple executive function measures


With the expanding toolkit for evaluating students’ executive functions, practitioners may choose from a variety of rating scales and/or performance tests. Often these different assessment approaches offer disparate, and sometimes conflicting, views of students’ self-regulation. In this data-driven workshop, we review multiple lines of evidence for valid use of both tests and scales, present a best practices model for integrating results, and teach participants how to clearly and efficiently convey their findings in writing.

Convention session locations are only viewable for convention attendees. Locations will be available/visible Monday, February, 25 2019.
