Use of Quality Data to Drive Instruction

Important Session Information:

Description: This workshop will address best practices for administering standardized measures of receptive language, expressive language, pragmatic language, and articulation and phonology skills. We will review the psychometric properties of tests, discuss why the metrics differ between language tests and speech tests, discuss the meaning of sensitivity and specificity calculations, and describe what to look for when selecting a measure. We will  discuss ways to interpret test results and consider the impact of cultural and linguistic diversity in the testing process. We will address the use of these tools in both face-to-face and remote formats.
