Untestable to Testable: Transforming Students Who Are “Difficult” to Assess


We all have a basic understanding of the principles of assessment. But, what happens when students are unable to sit at a table, point to a picture or symbol in a stimulus book or provide a verbal response, or engage in behaviors that impact their participation in testing? Typically we describe these students as untestable and resort to using assessment and evaluation methods that are less accurate and do not provide complete information. This training will explore the selection and use of appropriate assessment measures, the development, implementation and use of alternative assessment procedures, adapting and modifying assessment measures, identifying alternative response formats, and quick and easy interventions that can be used to support participation and engagement.
