A Critical Analysis of Time Allocation in Psychoeducational Evaluations
Taub, Gordon E.; Valentine, Jennifer
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v7 n4 p285-290 2014
This study provides results form a national survey examining school psychologists' allocation of time in psychoeducational evaluations. A total of 177 participants with an average of 13.45 years professional experience in school psychology, representing 39 states, participated in the survey. The results indicate that school psychologists spend the majority of their time engaging in test administration and report-writing components of the evaluation process. The data also revealed that the evaluation of students with possible emotional disabilities is most time intensive when compared to evaluations of students with possible learning or intellectual disabilities. Implications of the results relating to policy and procedures to improve the learning outcomes of students in public school settings are provided.
