Learning Disorder Assessment in Public Schools

Solving the Puzzle of Learning Disorders              Assessment 101                                                                Sharon L. Wenger, M.Ed.

There is an important rule you need to know about assessment: the results are only as good as the test, and the examiner. A good examiner, administering a good instrument, should give you valid, usable results. But the opposite is also true: a bad examiner, or a bad instrument, will give you invalid, confusing, even misleading results.

Eric Digest                                                               Assessment of Preschool Children

(excerpt) Young children, however, are difficult subjects to assess accurately because of their activity level and distractibility, shorter attention span, wariness of strangers, and inconsistent performance in unfamiliar environments. Other factors that may affect a child's performance include cultural differences and language barriers, parents not having books to read to their child and a child's lack of interaction with other children. Consequently, assessment of infants, toddlers, and young children requires sensitivity to the child's background, and knowledge of testing limitations and procedures with young children.
