Timothy Runge (Educational and School Psychology) co-presented two workshops at the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network in Harrisburg and East on October 3 and 4, 2018, respectively.

The title of each workshop was “Best Practices in Tier 1 Writing Assessment for Instruction and Intervention.” Runge discussed different sources and methods of screening data that can be used to assess students’ writing skills. Emphasis was placed on teaching attendees how to administer, score, and interpret curriculum-based assessment in written expression (CBM-WE). Runge then provided explicit instruction on how to monitor students’ writing progress via ordinary least squares regression analyses calculated from CBM-WE probes administered over multiple weeks.

This workshop is a part of a year- long training and technical assistance series provided by the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network to invited elementary and middle schools across Pennsylvania.
