Shining the light on assessment data

Understanding student academic growth for students with learning differences requires deep understanding of a student's strengths and challenges. Examining standard scores obtained in achievement testing- say from the Woodcock Johnson Test of Achievement- against the scores obtained from IQ tests (such as the WISC) gives educators greater data for realistic and unrealistic expectations for their students.  Sharing with parents the information gathered helps to shine the light on student strengths and challenges against performance and allows reasonable goals to be formulated.
