2016 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

T4 - Tests of Written Language


Oct 27, 2016 10:30am ‐ Oct 27, 2016 11:30am


Standard: $20.00

Description

Tests of written language are notorious for their lack of consistency, a limited sample of skills, and for providing scores that may not reflect a student’s ability to be successful in the classroom. Participants in this workshop will learn how to make good decisions regarding test selection and interpretation. Standardized tests will be compared and contrasted from the perspective of the publisher’s view of written expression and the specific skills that are highlighted. Participants will analyze techniques commonly used to assess writing skills, and, in the end, participants will learn how to select tests and interpret findings as a path to meaningful recommendations.
