The morning session will provide test kit training on the newly updated Bateria IV. The Batería IV Woodcock-Muñoz (Batería IV) is the parallel Spanish version of Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJ IV). It provides an efficient and psychometrically sound assessment of cognitive abilities and academic skills with updated norms and content that reflects current Spanish linguistic conventions and culture.
The afternoon session will focus on best practices for bilingual special education evaluations. The information provided will focus on the principles and strategies that all evaluation personnel may use for culturally fair and appropriate assessment practices in the assessment of English Language Learners.
This workshop will be presented by Brenda De La Garza from Region 1.
