What is an Educational Assessment?
An educational assessment is an assessment of the skills that are necessary for school/educational performance.
Assessment focuses on determining the level of a child's oral language, reading, reading comprehension, spelling, writing skills and math. In addition, the assessment also includes an evaluation of processing skills (like auditory memory, phonological awareness, visual perception, and visual-motor integration)
The results obtained on the educational tests are compared to the IQ scores. If there is a significant discrepancy between the scores, a diagnosis of learning disabilities is made.
After a child is diagnosed with learning disabilities he is referred to a special educator for remedial help. The special educator is not a tutor, but a person who works directly on areas of underachievement. Remedial help improves a child's weak areas, thereby improving his/her academic performance.
C.A.T -This projective technique presents situations of special concern to children. It consists of 10 animal pictures in a social context involving the child in conflict, identities, roles, family structures, and interpersonal interaction. The supplement (C.A.T.-S) presents children with common family situations (i.e., prolonged illness, physical disability, mother's pregnancy, separation of parents).Children who do not produce stories readily can manipulate these forms as a play technique. The C.A.T.-H consists of human figures and situations that parallel the original C.A.T.
VSMS -The Vineland Social Maturity Scale measures social competence, self-help skills, and adaptive behavior from infancy to adulthood. It is used in planning for therapy and/or individualized instruction for persons with mental retardation or emotional disorders. The Vineland scale, which can be used from birth up to the age of 30, consists of a 117-item interview with a parent or other primary caregiver. (There is also a classroom version for ages 3-12 that can be completed by a teacher.) Personal and social skills are evaluated in the following areas: daily living skills (general self-help, eating, dressing); communication (listening, speaking, writing); motor skills (fine and gross, including locomotion); socialization (interpersonal relationships, play and leisure, and coping skills); occupational skills; and self-direction. (An optional Maladaptive Behavior scale is also available.) The test is untimed and takes 20-30 minutes. Raw scores are converted to an age equivalent score (expressed as social age) and a social quotient.
