Title: Best Practice for the Use of Standardized Assessment Tools for Speech-Language
         Evaluations with considerations for Remote Administration

Presenter: Ellen Kester, PhD; CCC-SLP

Description: This workshop will address best practices for administering standardized measures of
receptive language, expressive language, pragmatic language, and articulation and phonology
skills. We will review the psychometric properties of tests, discuss why the metrics differ
between language tests and speech tests, discuss the meaning of sensitivity and specificity
calculations, and describe what to look for when selecting a measure. We will discuss ways to
interpret test results and consider the impact of cultural and linguistic diversity in the testing
process. We will address the use of these tools in both face-to-face and remote formats.

This event is free to all Region 10 LEAs.
