Skills Screener: Guide to Administration and Scoring.
Bevis, Dianne; And Others
Developed by the SCAT (Support Competence-Assistance and Training) Project staff, the three documents provide information on the SCAT screener (a series of subtests for identifying high-priority or potentially handicapped students), the initial assessment phase of systematic instruction, and probes for reading and math which are designed to be used as part of the initial assessment procedures. The first document covers background and development, teacher preparation, administration, scoring, and using results of the SCAT screener. (The bulk of this document is comprised of copies of the reading and mathematics skills screening subtests.) The second document covers the five steps involved in initial assessment: group screening in the regular classroom, using screening information to identify potentially handicapped students, 5-day skill probing of high priority students, evaluating assessment information, and reporting and sharing information. Appendixes to this document include answer guides, sample charts and forms, and a summary of skill and skill-level information. The final document contains materials for probing, a procedure for sampling a student's performance on a specific skill over a period of days. (SBH)
