Your child has received special education for three years.

  • Has she caught up with the peer group?
  • Has she fallen further behind?
  • How do you know?
  • What do standard scores, percentile ranks, subtest scores, and age and grade equivalents mean?

Changes in test scores over time provide the means to assess progress or regression.

To successfully negotiate for special ed services that provide educational benefit, you need to know how to interpret test scores.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how to use psychological and educational achievement test scores to measure your child's educational growth.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Basic Principles of Tests and Measurements

Important educational decisions, from eligibility to the intensity of educational services provided, should be based on the results of psychological and educational achievement testing.

Parents who obtain appropriate programs for their children have learned what different tests measure and what the test results mean.

Why Should Parents Get a Comprehensive Evaluation?

We encourage parents to gather information and develop expertise about their child's disability, strengths, weaknesses, and effective educational remediation methods.

This usually means parents need to get more than one evaluation of their child.
