PI040: Intern in the Middle: Navigating and Integrating Polarized Assessment Practices

Friday, February 21, 2014 9:00 AM–9:45 AM

Description:

As a school psychology intern trained in Iowa but working in Minnesota, applying training from one state to working in another involved a steep learning curve. This participant information exchange will include a brief overview of two very different special education systems. Participants will gain a better understanding of the challenges of integrating systems of RTI and standardized testing. Structured discussion will also focus on implications for training school psychologists.
