Student Information:

Student: D. McStuffin
Date of Birth: December 14, 2006
Grade: 3rd
Parents: Mr. and Mrs. McStuffins

D. McStuffin is an 8 year, one month old African American female. She is the oldest of two siblings and has a 6 year old brother. She resides in the home with her mother and father. Developmentally, she achieved her milestones (walking, talking, toileting) at a slower than usual pace. Mother reports she had a complicated delivery that resulted in a C-section delivery. D. McStuffin had an initial Apgar score of 6, but when retested 5 minutes later her Apgar increased to 7. There were no other complications reported.

However, D. McStuffin entered into a Project Find Early Intervention Program for developmentally delayed preschoolers. Mother reports that she attended this program 4 days a week for a half day. The program focused on speech and language development, as well as fine and gross motor development. Parents participated in a once a month language development experience field trip aimed at teaching parents how to enhance their child's developmental skills in the home or outside of the school environment.

Focusing on Informal Student Assessment

Focus Student Assessment
General Information:
The purpose of this assignment is to learn how to administer teacher-friendly informal assessment techniques. You must not use any formal or standardized measures for this assessment. The results from these assessments should be narrow in focus and should provide meaningful information for making instructional decisions (e.g., what objectives are needed, what approach might be best, etc.).
You may use ANY assessment technique from books included in the digital library for the following courses [note: this is different from what is stated in the syllabus; this means that you are not required to develop your own assessments but you must carefully choose appropriate assessments depending on the child's current functioning level]:
1. EPSY 6303 [use only one unless a persuasive rationale can be provided]
2. EPSY 6316
3. EPSY 6311
4. EPSY 6356
5. EPSY 6302
You must choose three techniques, but you must focus only on one area of assessment from the following list:
1. Oral language
2. Reading (emergent to advanced)
3. Written language (from handwriting to spelling to composing)
4. Mathematics
5. Emotional/social/behavioral
6. Study skills
