Screening intervention starts with identification

How can you determine the most effective approach to provide kids support for their specific needs?

Education professionals understand that immediate assessment of evidence-based programs is the key to delivering quality outcomes. Student pre and post assessment is one of the key tools in education. Student screening is a critical step for early identification of children who are at-risk. Screening intervention starts with identification; with accurate screening data you are able to identify those children who need additional help. Immediate feedback allows you to adapt your approach and develop timely plans and interventions. An effective screening program uses timely feedback to inform global policies implemented at all levels of your organization or district.  Individual pre-post assessments support instructional adaptations and adjustments.  Pre-post assessments also evaluate which programs work best for which groups.  

What’s the most important step to any evaluation? Data collection? Choosing a system? Hiring the right evaluator? No, no, and no. The most important step is defining your question, and the more specific you can be, the better.
