Best Practice in Diagnostic Assessment Report Writing
A diagnostic assessment report at primary level is an extremely important document. It must enable all those involved with the child to understand his/her strengths and weaknesses, and provide recommendations for support that will allow the child to go forward to achieve his/her goals. It must also be acceptable to a wide variety of audiences and be rigorous enough to stand up to potential legal challenge. This CPD event aims to support professionals trying to meet these goals. The course will allow you to:
· Explore best practice in full diagnostic assessment at KS1 / KS2
· Explore ways to streamline the writing process by adopting a structured approach
· Develop jargon-free writing - consider how best to communicate technical information
· Reflect on how your assessment reports meet current SASC Guidelines for best practice
· Meet the criteria for report writing at Assessment Practising Certificate level
This event will focus on generic report writing skills and will cover the following areas:
o Choosing tests
o Presenting test results in an effective and accessible style
o Using reliable evidence from scores as the foundation of a confident conclusion
o Making appropriate recommendations for classroom and specialist support
By the end of the day you will feel more confident in your ability to produce a full diagnostic assessment report at primary level. A complete exemplar report will not be provided, given the vast array of settings and purposes for reports, but a clear structure and approach will be ensured, to apply in your own practice.
Please note: It will be assumed that delegates are qualified to conduct full diagnostic assessments and are familiar with key underlying principles and assessment procedures and common tests.
All delegates are asked to bring a current, standardised test manual for use during the day.
