Best Practice for the Use of Standardized Assessment Tools for Speech-Language Evaluations with Considerations for Remote Administration
Speech Pathology Webinar Series






Presenter: Ellen Kester, PhD; CCC-SLP

This workshop will address best practices for administering standardized measures of receptive language, expressive language, pragmatic language, and articulation and phonology skills. We will review the psychometric properties of tests, discuss why the metrics differ between language tests and speech tests, discuss the meaning of sensitivity and specificity calculations, and describe what to look for when selecting a measure. We will discuss ways to interpret test results and consider the impact of cultural and linguistic diversity in the testing process. We will address the use of these tools in both face-to-face and remote formats.
