Core-Selective Evaluation Process: An Approach to SLD Identification

Core-selective Evaluation Process is defined as a third-method model, or pattern of strengths and weaknesses model, approach to SLD identification. This session will discuss the history of SLD evaluation and explore C-SEP as an efficient model for planning and assessing for SLD. This approach to SLD identification is a third-method pattern of strengths and weakness (PSW) approach rooted in contemporary CHC theory and features the application of professional judgment, integrated data analysis techniques, and the use of statistical support to help guide decisions. The organizational framework of C-SEP is a set of sound educational practices logically interwoven to provide the most comprehensive, statistically sound, and legally defensible assessment of SLD. This presentation will further describe the organizational framework of C-SEP and distinguish C-SEP from other methods.

This session is a three part series: 
October 18 (9AM- 4PM) face-to-face at ESC Region 12: Getting to know C-SEP

November 10 (9AM- 4PM) face-to-face at ESC Region 12: Organizing data & targeted assessment practices & Pattern Seeking 
This session will demonstrate how to identify a pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) using the core-selective approach, yielding diagnostically useful, legally defensible information in a time-efficient manner. 

November 18 (9AM-12PM) virtual meeting.
