Course Overview

Join us for this 2-hour virtual workshop to gain timely information on the impact of COVID-19 on testing and diagnostic practices related to literacy skills. Learn how practitioners whose roles involve testing of students using standardized tests can adapt their practices in the context of COVID-19. You will learn about digital options for administration of commonly used standardized tests, describe benefits and limitations of remote, hybrid, and in-person contexts for testing, and learn from practitioners who are implementing a range of testing practices during COVID-19.

Panelists representing publishers will join us from Pearson, Pro-Ed, and Brookes. The practitioner panel spans neuropsychologists, SLPs, and school psychologists from public schools and private practice settings.

All registrants will receive a recording of the session.


Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to:

 1.  Understand test modifications and options for commonly used standardized tests of literacy-based skills in the context of COVID-19.

 2.  Understand the experiences of clinical practitioners in assessing students in the context of COVID-19.

 3.  List relative benefits and limitations of testing in remote, hybrid, and in-person contexts.
