Assessment and Screening. A Center Quick Training Aid.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
Efficient and accurate screening and assessment strategies are essential for matching students with the programs and interventions to address their current needs and prevent problems from getting bigger. This process calls for screening tools that range from descriptions by referrers, through surveys to identify unrecognized problems, to analysis of records (such as attendance, grades, and test scores). This quick training aid presents a brief set of resources on assessment and screening to guide those providing an in-service training session. The packet contains a brief introduction to the topic with key talking points, fact sheets and practice notes, tools and handouts, and a directory of additional resources. (GCP)
