Evaluations

Diagnostic evaluations are available to parents and schools

Diagnostic Evaluations

Diagnostic evaluations are available to parents and schools, and provide information about a student’s learning in general, or answer specific questions about a student’s abilities and skills.  The diagnostic evaluation includes assessments of the student’s aptitude, achievement, and learning strengths and needs.

Diagnostic Evaluations occur in 3 phases:

1. Consultation with parents and/or teachers about strengths and concerns.

  • Review of existing student records (parents/guardians need to provide)
  • Discussion of student’s strengths and concerns
  • Determination of assessments for the evaluation

2. Assessment sessions

  • 3 hours generally needed, conducted over 2-3 meetings
  • Includes both formal (standardized) assessments and informal assessments to evaluate the student’s knowledge, abilities, and skills.

3. Analysis of findings and development of Instructional Plan

  • Diagnostic Report provided to parents includes assessment results, interpretations, and specific instructional recommendations.  Report is appropriate for use in schools or other student services settings.
  • EnCourage Education Intervention Specialists use the Instructional Plan to structure both what is taught and how it will be taught to maximize learning.
