Woodcock Johnson IV Test of Academic Achievement Due Saturday Academic Achievement Testing is useful in assessing a student’s academic ability. These standardized tests were developed to measure skills and knowledge. They can be helpful in assessing needs, monitoring a student’s progress, diagnosing a student with a specific learning disability, or identifying lagging skills to be addressed in a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). After reviewing information on Woodcock-Johnson IV webinars (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, n.d.) and reading the Woodcock-Johnson IV Contemporary Assessment brochure (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, n.d.) and Evaluating a Test (Concordia University, n.d.), write a 3- to 4-page response to the following: How do you use the Woodcock-Johnson IV assessment in determining Specific Learning Disability? How can you use the Woodcock-Johnson IV assessment to determine student’s strengths and weaknesses? How can you use the Woodcock-Johnson IV in the identification of dyslexia? How can you link the assessment results of the Woodcock-Johnson IV to individualized evidence based interventions? Which standardized academic achievement test does your school district administer? How does your school district make students eligible under Specific Learning Disability? Do they use Response to Intervention (RtI), PSW, or discrepancy approaches? What is the training for you as a Special Education Teacher in learning how to administer this assessment? Support your statements with evidence from the Required Studies and your research.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
