    Does anyone use the Brigance within their classroom? My special ed. director has suggested we get the Brigance to assess our MH populaton. We would be using it from grades K-12. Just looking for some information and likes/dislikes.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've used it in the past. As a h.s. teacher in severe c.d., most of my kids don't get tested for the 3 years. We choose to opt them out. I did like the Brigance when I gave it though.

    I used the Brigance assessment as a tool to track skills and write iep goals when I taught preschool sped. I liked the way it was organized, showed age appropriate skills in a variety of categories.

    I use the kaufman at the high school level. My elementary peers use the Brigance and the kaufman. They say they prefer the kaufman.

    As it relates to what? To parents? To school? For IEP goals? Progress monitoring?

    I used the data to provide baseline for my IEP goals & objectives. So I would say something like "Student was given the CIBS II in August 2010. He scored 80% on 2nd grade comprehension - long passages, 80% on 3rd, 60% on 4th, and 20% on 5th. On short passages, he scored 100% on 2nd, 80% on 3rd, 80% on 4th and 40% on 5th."

    Then use that information to write a goal such as "When presented with a passage at the 4th grade level with at least # words, student will answer multiple choice questions with at least 90% accuracy on 2 out of 3 times by the end of the fourth nine weeks."
