Best Practices in Tele-Assessment
Dr. Kacey Gilbert, Eastern Washington University
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused drastic changes in traditional schooling. In the face of these changes, school psychologists need to consider alternative methods to conduct mandated psychoeducational evaluations for students. Digital and tele-assessments offer an opportunity to move forward with evaluations while meeting social distancing recommendations set forth by states. The goal of this session is to introduce practitioners to Q-interactive as a platform for conducting evaluations virtually and in other settings and discuss professional considerations for conducting digital and tele-assessments.
Meeting the COVID-19 Deadlines: A Framework for Choosing Assessments to Determine Eligibility
Dr. S. Kathleen Krach, Florida State University
During these unprecedented times, face to face testing is being questioned due the safety concerns to the evaluator and student. This session will examine the use of remote assessment and provide considerations to guide the decision-making process as to whether remote assessment is appropriate for a particular evaluation. Topics include examiner considerations, legal/ethical considerations, examinee selection, informed consent, screening for appropriateness of remote administration, and technology requirements. Practical guidance, including a free tips guide, will be shared to lead examiners through deciding how and when to implement remote assessment and documentation of their decision.

Kathleen Woodward, Ed.S., NCSP, Pearson
