9780470617915: Comprehensive Evaluations: Case Reports for Psychologists, Diagnosticians, and Special Educators

An invaluable collection of sample case reports from experts in child and adolescent assessment

With contributions from authorities in the fields of psychology and special education-including Dawn Flanagan, Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, Randy Kamphaus, Nadeen Kaufman, George McCloskey, Jack Naglieri, Cecil Reynolds, and Gale Roid—Comprehensive Evaluations provides over fifty sample case reports to help you draft carefully planned, goal-directed, and comprehensive evaluations that clearly explain the reasons for a student's school-related difficulties, from preschool to postsecondary level.

A wellspring of information for educational professionals, Comprehensive Evaluations provides models for writing diagnostic reports to accompany the tests most frequently administered in the evaluation of children, adolescents, and adults, including the BASC-2, KABC-II, WAIS-IV, WISC-IV, and WJ III. The reports reflect various disciplines within psychology and education, different theoretical perspectives and paradigms, and span a broad spectrum of disabilities.

The diagnostic reports found within Comprehensive Evaluations will help:

  • Expand your familiarity with widely used test instruments

  • Enhance your understanding of the interpretation of test scores

  • Improve your ability to tailor written reports to the purposes of the evaluation

  • Translate assessment results into meaningful treatment recommendations

  • Recognize the differences in what evaluators from various school districts, agencies, and private practices consider to be a comprehensive evaluation

  • Appreciate how your theoretical perspective and choice of tests can influence diagnostic conclusions

  • Determine a report writing style that meets your needs

Comprehensive Evaluations deftly illustrates how thorough assessments help empirically pinpoint the reasons a student is struggling in school, which then allows an evaluator to select the most appropriate accommodations and interventions to help the student succeed.
