The Role of Diagnostic Assessment Within an RtI Frameowrk: The key to needs identification and perscriptive teaching

Dr. Michael McKenna, University of Virginia | June 29, 2010, 8:30 am-3 pm

This presentation will explain an approach to diagnostic assessment based on the Cognitive Model of Reading Assessment. This approach involves the use of informal measures useful in planning instruction at Tiers 2 and 3. The session will not address the use of formal diagnostic assessments typically used in special education. The principal focus will be fluency, decoding, sight words, and phonological awareness. Problems with diagnostic assessment in the areas of vocabulary and comprehension will be briefly examined.
