    White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective. 

    please let them know.

    white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."

You’re awesome and I really needed to hear this. Thanks.
I’m just so frustrated. Really, my only option to save this grade is to fake the answers on what I messed up. I hate doing it, but I have to or I might fail this assignment. I’m having a friend who is a psychometrician go over with me everything with basals and ceilings so I don’t screw up again.
It really pisses me off because my professor asked in class if everyone understood, we said “no”, and she said “well, the examiners training workbook will fix that”

True story. I learned like three new assessments during practicum. One of them, (the GORT) I taught myself during my lunch break before administering it. I’m going to try and learn the TOMAL, PAL and KABC by the end of this semester.

mm I’m interested to know what type of assessment courses y’all have? We have hours the second semester in the program and we do about 10 different commonly used assessment. For each assessment, about 3 to 4 is required to be turned in. If you fail on, you have to re do it again. The way the they do it is by scaffolding. They help alot with the first assessment (WISC) and slowly keep their hands off as we continue on. By the time we hit the DAS, then we pretty much can learn just by ourselves. The professors says they do that because the tests change so rapidly in the field so you must learn how to teach yourself or you will make mistakes. We learn academic/achievement tests during our first semester. During the second year, in our second semester is when we learn the personality/behavior assessments. But I also want to note, I think they do this early on to kinda weed out the ones who won’t make it and those that will. If you fail too many assessments, they will ask you to drop and retake the course. When our professors told us other programs were not teaching this many assessments before practicum, we were shocked! I mean, yeah I ended up testing a bunch of kids before my first year was over and it was stressful but I learned a lot.

My assessment classes was broken into two - Cognitive and Academic. For Cog (in the fall) we only did the WISC and WJ but that’s because our course was focused mainly on teaching CHC/Cross Battery techniques. We did three admins of the WISC, three of the WJ and then our fourth of the WISC and WJ were on the same kid so we could write a cross battery report. The good thing is we learned CHC theory inside and out, the bad thing is we only learned two assessments. We then learned how to apply CHC to the academic assessments (the WIAT and WJ-Aca)We had a later practicum class that focused on the DAS and KABC as well. Socio-emotional assessment was a separate class.

We had 3 assessment classes. The first was basically an intro. We went over the WJ cog and ach, the WISC, the WAIS and the ASEBA. The school and the clinical students took it together. We learned CHC theory as well as some other theories of intelligence and analyzed them and learned the basics of administration and report writing.  Then we had an additional assessment class just for the school psychs where we went over a TON of other cognitive, achievement, and neuropsych batteries and went more into cross battery assessment and how to build assessment batteries specific to referral concerns. At the same time as we were taking that class, we also had a class on behavioral/emotional assessments which went more into depth in rating scales including stuff like the BASC and Conners CBRS and Conners 3, BRIEF, etc, and went over the ADOS and some other autism related assessments. We also talked about different observation techniques and strategies in that class. Through all of these classes we had to administer assessments, write reports and give feedback.

Interesting! I’m so curious what states you all live in as well as what year everyone is. I’m in my second year, and we have literally only had ONE assessment class and we only learned the WISC-IV. I mean we frequently talk about others and what they’re used for but we haven’t gone in depth as far as actually administering and scoring them. I know at my practicum I’ll be administering the WIAT, but other than that everyone here seems to really be moving away from traditional testing. I kinda feel like maybe I’m missing out though. Hmmm

I’m at the only school psych program in West Virginia. I have three assessment classes. The first was the first year fall semester and it consisted of conducting FBAs with the conners and the BASC-2 as well as learning about the GORT. The assessment class I’m in now is teaching about the big assessments such as the Wiat, WJ, and WISC along with the ABAS and Vineland. We administer each twice with the exception of the Vineland and ABAS. Then we pick a protocol and write a report on each type of assessment. Next semester, we will learn assessments such as the BRIEF, ADOS, NEPSY. My program is actually thinking about adding a 4th assessment class because of how many assessments are having to be taught during other classes. My program is very neuropsych heavy and I love it. I feel like cross-battery assessments are a wonderful tool to give insights into how a child operates. I couldn’t imagine only having one assessment class.
I’m also planning on getting the school neuropsychologist certificate.

This has been super interesting seeing how everyone’s assessment classes are organized. The way it’s organized in Missouri is Behavioral Assessment first semester in your first year where we learned about the BASC, the BRIEF, and SDO/observation methods. Second semester first year we do a cognitive assessment class where we had to administer 3 WISCs, a WAIS, and 3 Stanford Binets and also were taught how to administer the KABC and the DAS. Then the summer between first and second year we take our achievement assessment class where we learned the WJ cog and achievement, the WIAT, the KTEA, and the GORT, each administered once.
Any other assessment we learn is entirely up to us in our second year of prac.

this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

!!!!!!!

you spent that $32 really badly

  9. My new car has a CD player and I have no idea where I put my giant binder of CDs because I haven’t needed them for a while. So that’s kind of a bummer.
