Register

April 4, 2016
2PM ET / 11AM PT

The US Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) recently sent out a memo that requires IEP goals to be relevant for the grade in which the student is enrolled. There is no technology to help teachers do this – yet [in italics].

Join us as Dr. Mark Shinn, Professor of School Psychology at National Louis University, points out the correlation and linkage between standards and IEP goals. Learn how to work with your standards and IEP goals to make them meet the most recent guidelines required by OSEP.

Fall 2015 Webinars:

Fixed form vs. Adaptive Testing: What kind of test suits your needs?

Wednesday, Nov 11, 2015 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM EST  Listen Here!
There are several assumptions made when schools choose an adaptive test: that students always give their best effort, teachers understand how to utilize the data provided by the assessment, and finally, that teachers are willing to develop individual instruction plans for 25-30 kids in grades 1-5, or 100-180 kids for middle school and high school. Continuing his Conversations in Assessment series, Dr. Mark Shinn weighs in on the debate between fixed form and adaptive testing.

Spring 2015 Webinars:

The Importance of End of Year Screening

Typically, end of year benchmark data is underused, which forfeits valuable time for intervention measures during the summer that could help narrow or close the student’s learning gap. Dr. Mark Shinn discusses how to use screening and progress monitoring instruments at the end of year to assist in goal-setting and planning.
