   Course Summary
To combine or not to combine? This webinar will look at the various data tables in the WRIT and consider how these can help to provide a detailed, nuanced and individualised analysis of a profile.
   Course Detail
The Writ is the assessment tool most used by specialist teacher assessors as a measure of underlying ability.One of its strengths is the data, held within the manual, which helps to analyse each individual profile.  This webinar aims to take a closer look at the data tables within the WRIT manual and to show how an assessor might use these to provide a nuanced analysis of an individual profile.

Course Description

The webinar will provide the opportunity for an assessor to evaluate their understanding of the following technical terms:

  • Standard score
  • Statistical significance
  • Prevalence
  • Subtest scatter

Following this and as a first step, it will look in detail at the data tables and consider how these can be used in a straightforward way.  It will go one step further and consider the individual scores as part of the whole WRIT profile.  It will go one step further again and consider how best the WRIT profile can be presented to further analyse the overall assessment profile.
