Dr. Jeremy Sharp Podcast Leave a Comment

“I feel much more confident in my interpretation if I predicted it in advance.”

Dr. Joel Schneider is back for another episode with his characteristic blend of humor, storytelling, and clinical acumen. Today, we’re talking about “robust interpretation practices” – Joel’s term for being diligent and mindful of test construction, score distribution, base rates, and other often-overlooked factors as we interpret our assessment data. Like with his previous episode, there is just so much good info to take away from this episode (you may want to listen twice)!
