BAASP: Evidence-Based Evaluation of English Learners: A Contemporary Approach to Testing for All Practitioners

January 8, 2020 9:00am-4:00pm

Presented by: Dr. Sam Ortiz
This presentation outlines an evidence-based approach to evaluating English learners with emphasis on contemporary methods for using tests in a nondiscriminatory manner. Specific procedures are presented which permit any evaluator to conduct assessments of English learners in a manner that can generate valid data to support conclusions and diagnostic decisions. Advances in tests and testing will be presented, including the dual-norming feature of the Ortiz PVAT and its utility in resolving the question of “difference vs. disorder”. Topics include: understanding bias in testing; issues regarding test score validity; advantages and disadvantages of typical methods for evaluating English learners; the importance of “true peer” comparisons, research foundations and use of Culture-Language Test Classifications and Interpretive Matrix, and application of the new Ortiz PVAT for evaluation of both native English speakers and English learners via a dual-norming feature that controls for relative exposure in learning English. The knowledge and skills gained will be useful to practitioners at all levels and provides a solid base for engaging in evaluation of English learners that incorporates contemporary research and advances in tests and testing.

Stress is a natural part of the child’s early life experiences and it can be argued that some exposure to stressors can be associated with mental wellness; however, it is clear, that at a certain point stress can become toxic and is associated with mental illness. This workshop will help to make the distinction between positive, tolerable and toxic stress; review for participants Tier 1 and 2 strategies for helping to ensure stressors are appropriately managed in the school setting; and finally, explore the variables associated with traumatic stress and special education eligibility.
