Psychological evaluation reports can be complex and confusing. This Webinar presentation provides information about evaluation data obtained from psychological, processing, and achievement testing. Essential components of the testing are covered, including general statistical properties. General knowledge of evaluations is needed to better understand the results, recommended interventions, and special education eligibility decisions. The presenter discusses different assessment measures to give participants some familiarity with ones that may be used in a typical assessment.
