    I'm having difficulty in determining which "norm-referenced", "criterion-based" assessment to use with one of my higher functioning students. I have a high school level classroom with students who are all ambulatory but their functional levels range from 6 months to at least 2nd grade. I still am required by the school where I teach to use some form of assessment to determine her level for the triennual (three-year review). She is way too high for the Inventory of Early Development II (bright yellow binder) and I'm trying to decide if the Brigance Transition SKills Inventory (dark blue binder) is too high for her. I would like to use another Brigance (possibly the Basic Skills Inventory (dark green binder), but I don't know? If you could suggest any ideas, it would be greatly appreciated. :thumb:

    I think that the Brigance Blue will be too difficult. The Brigance Green might be alright. I generally find that all the pre-reading skills at the beginning of the assessment are too tedious. Can the student do the Woodcock Johnson III?

    Our school psychologist does all testing for triennials. He uses Woodcock-Johnson.

    The WJ-III might not be good to use to test a population whose functional levels range from 6 mos. to 2 years, as the WJ Test of Achievement's lowest Grade Equivalent is <K.0.
