  3. What does the Woodcock (WRMT) assess? Reading

  4. What is reliability? The consistency of results obtained from an assessment

  5. What does IQ stand for? Intelligence Quotient

  6. What is validity? The accuracy and appropriateness of the interpretations and inferences drawn from the results of a test

  7. What does the PPVT test? Receptive vocabulary

  8. What is assessment? The systematic collection and interpretation of data

  9. What is assessment bias? Bias may be indicated if the mean test of one group differs substantially from another group

  10. Why do we screen students? To determine whether there is a reason or suspicion for continued testing

  11. What percentage of people are between 1 and 2 standard deviations below the mean? Approximately 13%

  12. What is measurement? The explicit quantification of the results obtained through testing--putting a number on it

  13. What is a test? The instrument that yields a number

  14. What is the mean score for most standardized tests? 100

  15. What is evaluation? The placing of value or interpretation of a measurement

  16. What is the range of scaled scores? 1 to 19

  17. Name an informal test strategy. Observations Work sample analysis Portfolios Task analysis Inventories Criterion referenced tests Diagnostic teaching Checklists and rating scales Interviews Rating scales

  18. Name a formal test. WISC-IV Key Math PPVT-III WRMT-R and a host of others

  19. Give a characteristic of formal tests. Very explicit instructions Uses a variety of score reporting types Scores are comparable to other scores

  20. How do you determine the validity and reliability of a test? Look in the manual for the correlation scores.

  21. What is a standard deviation? The average amount of difference from the mean of all the scores

  22. If you are very confident of a test procedure, what level of confidence do you choose? 68%

  23. What is the DEC 1 for? Special education referral

  24. When do we use scaled scores? For subtests

  25. What is the Buckley Act? FERPA

  26. What is the definition of a learning disability? A disorder on one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or using language, spoken or written

  27. In what areas is a learning disability manifested? Writing, speaking, reading, spelling, thinking, listening, and math

  28. What is the definition of mental retardation or intellectual disability? Significantly subaverage intellectual disability existing concurrently with deficits in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period

  29. What is the median of a percentile score? 50

  30. What score is generally one standard deviation below the mean when the mean is 100? 85

  31. Do the parents have the right to change their minds after signing the consent for evaluation? Yes

  32. What is a percentile score? A ranking of performers: the value of the variable below which a certain percent of the participants fall

  33. What records are not accessible to parents under the Buckley Act? Notes kept in the sole possession of the note maker

  34. What is a bell curve? A distribution of scores around a mean

  35. What is the DEC 2 for? Consent for evaluation or reevaluation

  36. What does CBM stand for? Curriculum based measurement

  37. What is the mean of a scaled score? 10

  38. What is the DEC 3 for? Eligibility determination

  39. What score is generally two standard deviations above the mean when the mean is 100? 130

  40. What does DIBELS stand for? Dynamic Indicators of Early Literacy

  41. What score is generally one standard deviation above the mean when the mean is 100? 115

  42. Persons with intellectual disability generally score lower than _____ on an IQ test. 70

  43. Where does a percentile score of 16 fall? At one standard deviation below the mean

  44. What score is generally three standard deviations below the mean when the mean is 100? 55

  45. What is predictive validity? The use of a test score to forecast the student’s performance on another task or measure

  46. What is the mean? The arithmetic average

  47. Is it appropriate to change the aim line when using curriculum based measurement? Yes

  48. What is a basal? The score below which all scores are considered correct

  49. Where does a percentile score of 38 fall? Within one standard deviation of the mean

  50. When do we use a raw score? As a tool to determine the standard scores
