    • How does client compare to the average?
    • Performance compared to norms
    • Scores refer to relative standing in relation to group norms
    • Used most often with articulation and language disorders and in these cases we have developmental expectations that have been documented
  16. Describe pros of a norm-referenced test. (5)
    • Less time consuming than descriptive measures
    • Provide scores often required by schools
    • Tests are objective
    • Easy to administer
    • Most preferred for 3rd party reimbursement

    • Do not explore learning potential
    • Do not provide info about communicative competence in real-life situations
    • Only evaluates isolated skills
    • Must be accurately administered
    • May not be appropriate for culturally and/or linguistically diverse clients
  18. Describe criterion-referenced tests.
    • How does client compare to expected level of performance?
    • Performance based on a predetermined standard not in comparison to others
    • Identifies what a client can and cannot do

  19. Describe pros of a criterion-referenced test. (3)
    • Less time consuming than descriptive measures
    • Tests are usually objective
    • Can receive 3rd party reimbursement
  20. Describe cons of a criterion-referenced test. (2)
    • Do not provide information about communicative competence in real-life situations
    • Only evaluates isolated skills
  21. How is the Authentic, Alternative, or Non-traditional Approach different from criterion-referenced tests?
    • Emphasizes contextualized test stimuli
    • Test environment is a realistic situation
    • Is Ongoing - Evaluates client’s performance during both the assessment and treatment. All info maintained in client portfolio. If appropriate, client will add to, review folder allowing for both self evaluation and self monitoring
  22. Using the Authentic, Alternative, or Non-traditional Approach hypotheses may be generated around what five different factors that may be related to the learner’s problem?
    • Curricular - questions regarding the content,material, or objective that impact the learner
    • Teacher/instructional - the manner in which the teacher is using the curriculum, instructing the learner, or interacting with the learner
    • Environmental - the learning environment and how it impacts the learner’s performance
    • Student skills - the learner’s mastery of prerequisite skills to perform specific academic or nonacademic tasks
    • Learner process - questions regarding the learner’s capacity to learn as well as the learner’s problem-solving strategies.
  23. Describe pros of Authentic, Alternative, or Non-traditional Approach. (5)
    • Naturalistic approach, similar to real world
    • Client participation in self evaluation and monitoring
    • Allows for individualization
    • Flexible
    • Can provide descriptive information useful for planning intervention
  24. Describe cons of Authentic, Alternative, or Non-traditional Approach. (6)
    • May lack objectivity
    • Most procedures not standardized, thus may lack reliability and validity
    • Requires advanced level of clinical skills
    • Requires lots of time for planning
    • May not be practical in some situations
    • Not preferred by 3rd party reimbursement
  25. What are psychometric principles?
    • Validity
    • Reliability
    • We don’t say a test is reliable or valid—instead we talk about whether estimates of reliability and validity for a test are high or low.
