Option 1: You will be provided with the data for a case study and you will write your report from what you have received.

You will be looking to answer the following questions in your report

● Does this student need to be evaluated for the presence of a disability?

● What are the cultural and familial impacts on these students’ performance in the classroom?

● How did the student perform on curriculum based measures? Standardized achievement testing? Assessment of social/emotional and behavioral functioning?

● How does the student compare with typically developing peers?

● What interventions have you (and others) put into place to address the deficits?

● How did the student respond to the interventions?

● What are the academic and social supports that are needed for this student to be successful?

Educational and Diagnostic Assessment for Children and Adolescents with Disabilities

Directions for Final Case Report: OPTION 1

As your summative assessment for this course you will conduct a case study and write a psychoeducational report on your findings.  The purpose of the report will be to contribute to the processes for determining eligibility through the collection of multiple data points.  There are two options for completion:

Option 1:  You will be provided with the data for a case study and you will write your report from what you have received.

You will be looking to answer the following questions in your report

· Does this student need to be evaluated for the presence of a disability?

· What are the cultural and familial impacts on these students’ performance in the classroom?

· How did the student perform on curriculum based measures? Standardized achievement testing? Assessment of social/emotional and behavioral functioning?

· How does the student compare with typically developing peers?

· What interventions have you (and others) put into place to address the deficits?

· How did the student respond to the interventions?

· What are the academic and social supports that are needed for this student to be successful?

· What are the goals and objectives that should be developed for this student?

Here is an outline to organize your report:

Section 1: Background Information

              Student information

Family

              School History

Section 2: Present Levels of Performance

Identification of the problems including any assessment that is available to you and your observations of the student.   This is the section where you will address how the student compares to typically developing peers through analysis of the data.  There should be two major sections here:

· Academic Functioning

· Grades

· Performance in class including your observations of the problem

· Interview data (parents/student/other school professionals)

· Test Data:  

· CBMs

· Standardized Assessment administered

· Interventions implemented and report on the success of those interventions

· Behavioral Functioning

· Description of the problem behaviors in your class

· Results of Behavior Assessment

· Hypothesis about the function of those behaviors

· Interview data (parents/student/other school professionals)

· Discussion of interventions implemented with the student

Section 3:  Build an argument for a case study evaluation for this student:

· Laws and regulations that support case study for this student.

· Your hypothesis about how the student meets eligibility for one of the 13 disabling        conditions. Does the child qualify for special education program and services?  Why or Why not? How does the data support or refute a diagnosis of one of the disabling conditions?   What type of program and related services might be required and  why? Be sure and speak to the Least Restrictive Principle and inclusion as you make your recommendations.

· You can also make suggestions for additional data to be collected:

Academic functioning concerns:

Recommendations for collecting data to reinforce your case for evaluation: Both CBM for monitoring and Individually Administered Academic Achievement. (your text provides some excellent descriptions of standardized Academic Achievement tests that are available)

Rationale for the recommendations for data collection

Social/Emotional concerns:

Recommendation for collecting data to reinforce your case for evaluation and your rationale for the choice

Section 4: Instructional Recommendations

· Explain how you would provide instruction based on the information.  For example, what skills would you focus on, how would you do this and why?

Section 5:  Goals and Objectives

· One Academic and One Behavioral Long Term Objective with three short term objectives written in SMART goal format that moves the student toward mastery of the goals.   Be sure your goals have a specific method for measuring progress toward the goal.

Section 6: Accommodations and Supports

· Recommendations for classroom and assessment accommodations and supports and why they are needed for classroom, district and state testing.

Your report should be comprehensive in nature and demonstrate your understanding of the evaluation process, data interpretation and analysis, with a thorough description of accommodations and supports and types of services.  Charts and graphs of the collected data are expected.

Your case report should be well organized and professionally written with few to no errors in mechanics or grammar.  If writing is challenging, then please refer to the syllabus for NLU learning supports where you can receive proofing and editing assistance. The case report should be written in a manner that all stakeholders,  and most specifically parents, can understand.  You will want to use chapters from the text on the eligibility questions for guidance on writing your report.  You should review the Case Report Rubric for better understanding of what is required for this assessment. The Case Report is the summative assessment for this course so you will want to incorporate all that you have learned. These resources may help you if some of the measures are unfamiliar:

The BAS (Benchmark Assessment System) was administered on 10/31/2019 and most was completed  at that time. 

● The first story the student was given was Not Too Cold for a Polar Bear which is a non-fiction,  Level Q book from System 2 of the BAS. Based on the results (namely, accuracy and

comprehension), this book was at the student’s “Independent” level. This places the student’s  reading level at the “November/December” period of Grade 4. The scores and results are listed  below: 

○ Accuracy (how many words pronounced correctly)- 98% 

○ Self-corrections (how many words initially mispronounced, but then corrected without  any prompting or comments from the test administrator)- 0 

○ Fluency (the pace at which the student read the story)- 2/3 

○ Rate (the amount of words read per minute)- 145.71 WPM (Words Per Minute) ○ Comprehension (various question types) 

■ Within the Text- 1/3 (“right there” questions) 

■ Beyond the Text- 2/3 (“inferential questions) 

■ About the Text- 3/3 (questions about the book’s features, author’s purpose, etc.) 

● The second story the student was given was The Election which is a fiction, Level R book from  System 2 of the BAS. Based on the results (again, accuracy and comprehension), this book was  at the student’s “Hard” level. This would be a student’s reading level at the “February/March”  period of Grade 4.The scores and results are listed below: 

○ Accuracy (how many words pronounced correctly)- 99% 

○ Self-corrections (how many words initially mispronounced, but then corrected without  any prompting or comments from the test administrator)- 0 

○ Fluency (the pace at which the student read the story)- 2/3

RtI work in Fall 2019 

During the fall of 2019 you provided Tier II interventions to KS to work on Reading Comprehension. You  planned for a 10-week intervention period from September to December when the team would meet  for the Individual Education Plan Part I to determine eligibility. You met with KS twice a week in a  small group of 8th graders who are also struggling with reading comprehension. You are using  easy.cbm: Multiple Choice Reading Comprehension (mcrc) assessments to help you gather data for the  eligibility meeting and to determine if your interventions with KS are resulting in improved reading comprehension. Complete the table and include it in your case report along with a discussion of the  results. 

You administered one measure every 4 weeks and here are the results:

Educational and Diagnostic Assessment for Children and Adolescents with Disabilities

Directions for Final Case Report: OPTION 1

As your summative assessment for this course you will conduct a case study and write a psychoeducational report on your findings.  The purpose of the report will be to contribute to the processes for determining eligibility through the collection of multiple data points.  There are two options for completion:

Option 1:  You will be provided with the data for a case study and you will write your report from what you have received.

You will be looking to answer the following questions in your report

· Does this student need to be evaluated for the presence of a disability?

· What are the cultural and familial impacts on these students’ performance in the classroom?

· How did the student perform on curriculum based measures? Standardized achievement testing? Assessment of social/emotional and behavioral functioning?

· How does the student compare with typically developing peers?

· What interventions have you (and others) put into place to address the deficits?

· How did the student respond to the interventions?

· What are the academic and social supports that are needed for this student to be successful?

· What are the goals and objectives that should be developed for this student?

Here is an outline to organize your report:

Section 1: Background Information

              Student information

Family

              School History

Section 2: Present Levels of Performance

Identification of the problems including any assessment that is available to you and your observations of the student.   This is the section where you will address how the student compares to typically developing peers through analysis of the data.  There should be two major sections here:

· Academic Functioning

· Grades

· Performance in class including your observations of the problem

· Interview data (parents/student/other school professionals)

· Test Data:  

· CBMs

· Standardized Assessment administered

· Interventions implemented and report on the success of those interventions

· Behavioral Functioning

· Description of the problem behaviors in your class

· Results of Behavior Assessment

· Hypothesis about the function of those behaviors

· Interview data (parents/student/other school professionals)

· Discussion of interventions implemented with the student

Section 3:  Build an argument for a case study evaluation for this student:

· Laws and regulations that support case study for this student.

· Your hypothesis about how the student meets eligibility for one of the 13 disabling        conditions. Does the child qualify for special education program and services?  Why or Why not? How does the data support or refute a diagnosis of one of the disabling conditions?   What type of program and related services might be required and  why? Be sure and speak to the Least Restrictive Principle and inclusion as you make your recommendations.

· You can also make suggestions for additional data to be collected:

Academic functioning concerns:

Recommendations for collecting data to reinforce your case for evaluation: Both CBM for monitoring and Individually Administered Academic Achievement. (your text provides some excellent descriptions of standardized Academic Achievement tests that are available)

Rationale for the recommendations for data collection

Social/Emotional concerns:

Recommendation for collecting data to reinforce your case for evaluation and your rationale for the choice

Section 4: Instructional Recommendations

· Explain how you would provide instruction based on the information.  For example, what skills would you focus on, how would you do this and why?

Section 5:  Goals and Objectives

· One Academic and One Behavioral Long Term Objective with three short term objectives written in SMART goal format that moves the student toward mastery of the goals.   Be sure your goals have a specific method for measuring progress toward the goal.

Section 6: Accommodations and Supports

· Recommendations for classroom and assessment accommodations and supports and why they are needed for classroom, district and state testing.

Your report should be comprehensive in nature and demonstrate your understanding of the evaluation process, data interpretation and analysis, with a thorough description of accommodations and supports and types of services.  Charts and graphs of the collected data are expected.

Your case report should be well organized and professionally written with few to no errors in mechanics or grammar.  If writing is challenging, then please refer to the syllabus for NLU learning supports where you can receive proofing and editing assistance. The case report should be written in a manner that all stakeholders,  and most specifically parents, can understand.  You will want to use chapters from the text on the eligibility questions for guidance on writing your report.  You should review the Case Report Rubric for better understanding of what is required for this assessment. The Case Report is the summative assessment for this course so you will want to incorporate all that you have learned. These resources may help you if some of the measures are unfamiliar:

Final Case Report Project: OPTION 1 CASE STUDY DATA AND CONSIDERATIONS

In Fall of 2019 KS was an 8th grade student being evaluated for special education support due to  concerns with his behavior, attention, literacy, and math skills. He is an English Learner whose 1st  language is Spanish. He has received EL supports since Kindergarten. KS is diagnosed with ADHD and  has a 504 plan for attention and focus since 4th grade. He is well liked by peers, has good social skills,  and is stronger in Math than Reading/Language Arts. Below you will find the data that the team has to work with and you are to analyze the data according to the directions in the case report  assignment and compile a psychoeducational report.

RtI work in Fall 2019 

During the fall of 2019 you provided Tier II interventions to KS to work on Reading Comprehension. You  planned for a 10-week intervention period from September to December when the team would meet  for the Individual Education Plan Part I to determine eligibility. You met with KS twice a week in a  small group of 8th graders who are also struggling with reading comprehension. You are using  easy.cbm: Multiple Choice Reading Comprehension (mcrc) assessments to help you gather data for the  eligibility meeting and to determine if your interventions with KS are resulting in improved reading comprehension. Complete the table and include it in your case report along with a discussion of the  results. 

You administered one measure every 4 weeks and here are the results:
