Be a Super Evaluator with the new WIAT-4



ESC-20 provides resources, training and technical assistance for evaluators. Quarterly contact group meetings for LSSP’s and Educational Diagnosticians are also provided.
 


Important Session Information:


This presentation covers the fourth edition of the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, a comprehensive measure of oral language, reading, written expression, and mathematics.  The WIAT-4 provides essential information for making diagnostic decisions about learning disordering in reading, dyslexia, math, and written expression.  This session will cover the four new subtests (Phonological Processing, Orthographic Fluency, Decoding Fluency, Orthographic Choice) which expand coverage of phonological and orthographic processing skills essential to understanding struggling readers.  Also, the WIAT-4 examination of written expression is expanded through the new Sentence Writing Fluency subtest.  In addition, automated computer scoring of the Essay Composition subtest allows for time efficiency and highly reliable results.  Using data from the WIAT-4, the presenter will describe the process educators and school psychologists use to make diagnostic decisions and instructional recommendations for students. Applications of the WIAT-4 for identification of dyslexia and dysgraphia will be discussed more in depth in the afternoon.
