Join Dr. Susie Raiford and I as we talk through the ins and outs of remote assessment, or telepractice, with the WISC-V and KTEA. We spend the first part of the episode talking through the research on telepractice, covering topics like equivalency, norming, and equating as we evaluate different modes of test administration. The conversation then shifts to practical guidelines for administering the WISC-V and KTEA remotely. Here are a few things we cover:
- Is remote assessment a viable, valid alternative to in-person administration?
- What is needed on the examiner side?
- What is needed on the client side?
- You don’t have to mail blocks to the client!
- Can we still get a full scale IQ through remote assessment?
