  • Assessing Cognitive Abilities of ELLs Using WISC-V Spanish

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD & Jarett Lehner

    Topic(s):

    Clinicians who assess cognitive abilities of children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds encounter unique challenges and complexities. In many cases, they need methods to tease out the impact of non-cognitive factors (e.g., acculturation, socioeconomic status, educational disadvantage, bilingualism) that may affect the child’s performance on cognitive tests.

    The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Fifth Edition Spanish (WISC–V Spanish) is a culturally and linguistically valid test of cognitive ability for use with Spanish-speaking children ages 6 through 16 years. In addition to providing information on cognitive abilities including verbal comprehension, visual-spatial, fluid reasoning, working memory, and processing speed, the WISC–V Spanish offers language-environment adjusted scores for the verbal subtests and indexes. The WISC–V Spanish is available in digital format using Pearson’s Q-interactive platform, and in the traditional paper format.

    This session will describe the structure of the WISC–V Spanish, features of subtest administration, and interpretation of the language-environment adjusted scores. The session will include a live demonstration of the digital assessment platform.

    Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, PhD

    Topic(s):

    Multi-tiered systems to support students’ development of core social emotional learning (SEL) skills are most effective when assessment and intervention components are integrated to produce frequent data-based feedback to users and system-wide accountability. The SSIS SEL Edition assessments and highly flexible Classwide Intervention Program (CIP) offers users a powerful set of tools that fit within most any multi-tiered support system in both elementary and secondary schools, is culturally responsive, is highly consistent with the CASEL SEL competency framework, and is a S.A.F.E. intervention.
