An Investigation Into the Systemic Pressures That Influence the Assessment Practices of Credentialed California School Psychologists
You are being asked to participate in a study, which has been designed to investigate and analyze the factors that influence the assessment practices of credentialed California School Psychologists. The study is unique in that it will seek to understand those factors related to both the school and district level, while analyzing the impact of such factors upon the application of ‘best scientific practices’ for accurate assessment. A compendium of best scientific practices – as noted by federal and state laws – will provide the context for validity, reliability, and legality of all actions when utilized to identify students for special education services in the K-12 academic environment.
The study will be conducted from May 1, 2022 until July 31, 2022, or until a random normative sample has been achieved from respondents. A summary of all results is projected to be published no later than December 31, 2022.
Identifying School Psychology Social Justice Competency Areas Through the Lens of the NASP Practice Model
The purpose of this study is to better understand how school psychology state association members view social justice, particularly members who are working in schools as school psychologists. NASP has identified social justice as one of its strategic goals. However, there is a need for research on what social justice might actually look like in practice, particularly organized around components of the NASP Practice Model. Utilizing a mixed methods approach (CASP members would be asked to completed a survey, within the survey there is a question asking if they would be willing to be interviewed separately. If yes, the research team would contact them), this multi-pronged study has the potential both to inform research and practice and also to inform NASP as an organization in identifying specific social justice competency areas.
