Data gathering and formal evaluation, as well as, instructional programming for ELLs will also be reviewed.

Module 4 - Interpreting Scores Module 4 is the fourth of five modules developed to assist school districts and charter schools in the identification of students with dyslexia. This module is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to interpret both quantitative (formal) and qualitative (informal) data used, in compliance with federal and state guidelines, to identify students with dyslexia. Specifically, the participant will understand the significance of quantitative data from normed assessment scores. The role that qualitative data plays when used with quantitative test scores in helping a Section 504 committee determine the identification of dyslexia, will also be reviewed.

Module 5 - Report Writing and Case Studies Module 5 if the fifth of five modules developed to assist school districts and charter schools in the identification of students with dyslexia. When a student is referred for a dyslexia evaluation, qualitative and quantitative information gathered by the evaluator is used to drive decision making within the legal framework of either the Section 504 or IDEA process. A methodical approach to processing the assessment data, such as the use of a structured written report, will help inform the appropriate committee before it makes any decisions regarding dyslexia identification. At the conclusion of this module, you will (1) know how to analyze and evaluate collected data and then use findings for report writing, (2) be familiar with a framework for documenting evaluation results, and (3) provide hands-on practice in using the framework of a written report to inform a §504 or ARD committee.
