Who would benefit from an Educational Assessment of Academic Achievement?
Reaching a decision to have an educational assessment typically comes after a period of struggle, distress, and various strategies to help improve the educational process. This assessment is an important step to help a student achieve success and for a parent to better understand how to address areas of concern. Results of this testing will address:
- Academic achievement
- Academic levels of functioning in:
- Written expression
- Academic readiness
- Academic potential
- Learning style
- Attention difficulties
- Communication skills
Results from this comprehensive assessment will provide important information in developing a plan of remediation.
What is involved in an Educational Assessment?
Educational evaluations are comprised of informal assessments, standardized tests, evaluator observation, criteria-referenced tests, checklists and interviews. Test scores are analyzed to better understand the student’s areas of learning strengths and needs. The evaluation will include specific recommendations to address what is going on with the student.
What happens after the Educational Assessment?
Once the comprehensive Educational Assessment is completed, an appointment will be scheduled with the parent to meet with our Educational Specialist. This follow-up conference will include a summary of the results and recommendations going forward to help the student achieve their greatest potential.
Do I need to complete a comprehensive educational assessment before getting started with tutoring?
No, depending on the individual child we may not need to complete the educational assessment. The student may be better suited for a placement test in order to develop the most personalized tutoring plan. We recommend contacting us to speak with our educational consultant to determine which plan is best for your child.
What information can I gain from an Educational Consultation?
Consultation and review can be very useful in determining the next best step to address educational problems. Oftentimes, there is a complexity of learning challenges (attention, behavior, speech/language, social interactions, academic) that need to be addressed. Often, a parent has questions about response and services provided by the school; needing to accurately know the areas of academic strengths and weaknesses; or the implementation of services.
