4

team members from different disciplines; each do individual evals; each write own report; little interaction with each other

5

team members from different disciplines; work together in initial assessment, but only 1 or 2 provide services

transdisciplinary team

6

team members from different disciplines interact and use suggestions/information; team writes eval and plan

interdisciplinary team

7

what type of test is systematic and provides quantitative information?

standardized

8

what represents average performance of a typical group of people, sampled at diff. age levels during standardization of a test

9

converted scores that show % of subjects who scored at or below a raw score

10

what is equivalent to to 50th percentile?

median

11

a measuring instrument measures what it SAYS it measures

validity

12

what type of validity: a new test correlates with an established test of known validity

concurrent validity

13

what type of validity: test scores are consistent with theoretical constructs, concepts, or expectations

construct validity

14

what type of validity: thorough examination of all test items to determine whether items are relevant to measuring what test purports to measure, and whether items adequately sample the full range of skills being measured

content validity

15

what type of validity: accuracy with which a test predicts future performance on a related task (GRE)

predictive validity

16

consistency with which same event is repeatedly measured

reliability

17

what type of reliability: how similarly a client's performance is independently rated by 2 or more observers

interjudge reliability

18

what type of reliability: consistency with which same observer measures same phenomenon on repeated occasions

intrajudge reliability

19

what type of reliability: consistency of measures when two forms of the game test are administered to the same person

alternate form reliability

20

what type of reliability: consistency of measures when the same test is administered to the same person twice

21

what type of reliability: measure of internal consistency of a test

split-half reliability

22

nominal vs. ordinal scale

nominal: present or absent (mild, mod, severe)
ordinal: numerical scale

23

what type of assessment evaluates a client's day-to-day communication skills in naturalistic, socially meaningful contexts

functional assessment

24

alternative assessment to standardized tests: client specific materials to sample speech-language behaviors repeatedly

client-specific assessment

25

alternative assessment to standardized tests: performance assessed through any means and evaluated against standard of performance (not norms)

criterion-referenced assessment

26

alternative assessment to standardized tests: naturalistic observation of skills

authentic assessment

27

alternative assessment to standardized tests: evaluates CH's ability to learn when provided instruction

dynamic assessment

28

re: treatment approaches, this one believes norms provide best basis for selecting target behaviors

normative strategy

29

re: treatment approaches, this one believes behaviors selected will improve client's communication and help meet social/academic demands

30

re: treatment approaches, this one believes effective communication is important

functional communication strategy
