   Course Summary
Using real case studies, this webinar, presented by Karen Bartlett, focuses on how to interpret findings in order to make the most appropriate recommendations at primary level.
   Course Detail

The key to enabling students move forward following a diagnostic assessment is that appropriate interventions are put in place based on the assessment outcomes. It could, therefore, be argued that the recommendations section of a report is the most important. This course looks at converting the information obtained from a diagnostic assessment into practical recommendations which reflect the child's needs at this level of study. It will also outline how to ensure reports are future proofed.

Course Description

This course will take delegates through the process of interpreting the findings of the diagnostic assessment report to ensure the recommendations target the specific individual needs of the child. Assessors will have the opportunity to work through actual case studies to investigate how aspects of background information, the learner's profile and impact of their needs provide the foundation to this process.  Delegates will explore the impact of specific weaknesses and strengths in literacy and learning on managing the curriculum and classroom in primary school setting.
