This interactive course is designed for anyone wanting to learn more about reading and writing assessment. It will focus on issues related to the assessment of reading, spelling, and writing—including identifying early signs of trouble, diagnosing dyslexia and dysgraphia, and communicating test results to parents and other educators.
A convenient four-day series of live virtual seminars that will deepen your knowledge of assessment and help you gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of testing. Join nationally recognized assessment expert, Dr. Melissa Farrall, for a series of case-study investigations that will serve as a vehicle for learning about assessing student strengths and weaknesses, determining interventions, linking assessment data to instruction, and building effective strategies to support all students.
