Special education policy requires that a comprehensive evaluation, using multiple sources of data, be conducted for all students referred for special education. During the assessment process, the multiple sources of data are collected and organized the evaluator must analyze and interpret the data. Triangulation of the data is key when analyzing the data. Looking beyond the standard scores to understand the learner is crucial. This session will highlight the various types of data (criterion-referenced data, NRT data, parent/teacher information, CBM, etc.) and discuss the importance of comparing and contrasting data sources across a construct. The importance of digging deeper into the task demands and considering results through different lenses (e.g., RPI) will also be discussed. A case study will be used to demonstrate the analysis and interpretation.
