Curriculum-based evaluation integrated with standardized academic assessment of reading, writing, and math. Identifying academic needs; developing research-based interventions; setting goals; monitoring progress; and adapting interventions as needed.
Academic Problem Solving
- Students will develop concise, targeted problem identification statements for academic problems that lead to evidence-based assessments and instruction that matches student needs.
Linking Assessment and Intervention
- Students will demonstrate competency in designing and implementing group and individual evidence-based instructional strategies/interventions (based on previous assessments) for academic problems.
Progress Monitoring and Data-Based Decision Making
- Students will incorporate means of monitoring progress, assessing treatment fidelity, and making intervention/instructional changes when needed. Students will implement the intervention, collect progress monitoring data, and evaluate outcomes using the data. Students will use data to make adjustments in the academic intervention if needed.
Consultation and Collaboration
- Students will demonstrate competency in collaborating and consulting with teachers, other professionals, and parents in designing and monitoring academic interventions and intensifying instruction.
Developmentally Sensitive and Culturally Responsive Practice
- Students will be able to describe how diversity issues (e.g. culture, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion, and gender) influence learning problems in school-aged children and adolescents. Assessment and intervention plans will be developmentally sensitive and culturally responsive. Students will demonstrate a compassionate, non-judgmental attitude.
