Using ALL the Data to Determine Student Need
This session will provide support to LEAs to analyze, interpret and utilize local academic assessments and other measures used for the purposes of making determinations of student need. With COVID related interruptions to in-person learning, students that did not fully participate during distance learning and other factors can lead to questions about the validity of the results of these tests.
With or without the pandemic, teams need to utilize information beyond standardized testing. Using data from a variety of sources is not only a legal requirement, but also helps ensure that the IEP team has determined all the needs of the student so that they can be addressed in their IEP.
This training will focus on which other data sources to utilize and how to integrate that information alongside standardized testing results.
