NASP Workshop 2012

Andy McCrea and I are presenting next month in Philadelphia for the National Association of School Psychologists Annual Convention. We are hoping to have an informative and interactive session with our participants. To sign up visit http://www.nasponline.org/conventions/2012/workshops.aspx and click on WS36. All participants are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet with Excel or Numbers!!! Our workshop can be attended as “Part II” to Dr. Joe Kovaleski’s workshop WS31.

Our workshop on Thursday, February 23, 2012, 12:30-3:30PM. Andy and I review the research on interpreting student growth using curriculum-based measurement data, model how to use Excel or Numbers to calculate a rate of improvement statistic, and discuss how student growth fits into the eligibility conversation within an RTI model. Data analysis and graphing will be featured. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet computer equipped with Excel or Numbers. This workshop can stand alone or serve as Part II to Dr. Kovaleski’s introductory workshop entitled Determining Eligibility for Special Education in an RTI System: Basic Concepts and Procedures (WS31), Thursday, February 23, 2012, 8:30–11:30 a.m.

Bring a colleague! Hope to see you there!


NASP Convention 2011

NASP - 2011 Convention

NASP - 2011 Convention - Rate of Improvement

Excited for this year’s National Association of School Psychologist’s Convention this week! I’ll be in San Fransisco, CA at the Nikko Hotel presenting with Dr. Joe Kovaleski from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Our workshop provides a model using response to intervention for special education eligibility. Naturally, I’ll be going over how to graph and calculate RATE OF IMPROVEMENT. Should be a nice trip! Hopefully it will bring some traffic to the new website! ~Caitlin
