Gain confidence in the more subtle and complex areas of diagnostic assessment
· Refresh your knowledge of statistical concepts in psychometric testing
· Ensure your assessment reports meet current professional best practice recommendations
This event is intended as a training opportunity for specialist teachers already conducting full diagnostic assessments but who would like to gain further confidence in more detailed analysis and revisit advanced statistical concepts in psychometric testing to ensure their practice meets current best practice recommendations. An experienced assessor will guide professionals through careful standardised test use and data analysis so practitioners can have improved confidence in their assessment practice and their diagnostic conclusions. Working with colleagues, an opportunity to apply these strategies to case study data will close the day. Please note: Examples will focus on secondary and adult learners
Ø Choosing tests
Ø Using reliable evidence from scores as the foundation of a confident conclusion
Ø Interpreting and reporting difficult score profiles
Ø Presenting test results in an effective and accessible style
Ø Exploration of more complex learner profiles
This very popular course has been developed following requests from Patoss members to focus more precisely on the data analysis element of the assessment process. It will nevertheless reference the key requirement to present assessment findings in an accessible format.
All delegates are asked to bring a current, standardised test manual for use during the day.
