Overview

You know how to administer a diagnostic assessment of reading in person, but how do you do this remotely?

Learn how to conduct a remote diagnostic reading interview, including assessments of Word Reading, Oral Vocabulary, and Oral Reading Fluency.

This PD opportunity is only available to practitioners who have completed the STAR training or Diagnostic Assessments of Reading. If you need to learn from the beginning how to conduct these diagnostic assessments, rather than broaden your knowledge to a remote setting, please register for EBRI: Diagnostic Assessments of Reading.

    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Completers of "Diagnostic Assessments of Reading" PD with Dr. Strucker
  • STAR-trained practitioners
Description

Diagnostic assessments of reading are essential to inform instruction and for appropriate class placement.

This workshop will cover how to conduct a remote diagnostic reading interview, including the background questionnaire and assessments of Word Reading, Oral Vocabulary, and Oral Reading Fluency. These remote assessment procedures and materials have been developed to match ABE learners’ varying amounts of technological access and familiarity, from learners with only cell phones to those with tablets or laptops and access to high speed internet.

This online, asynchronous, self-paced short course will be open for one month; you can access the course at any time during that month.

Note: This course cannot be accessed from the SABES website. Once you have registered and your completion of the prerequisite is verified, you will receive an email from Joanne Harrington (jharrington@qcc.mass.edu) with instructions on how to access this recorded session.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this professional development activity/course, you will be able to:

  • Conduct remote assessments by various modes including cell phone only, Zoom, or any other virtual platform
