About the Session:

WIAT-III Training is a two-day workshop that examines the administration and scoring of all subtests which comprise the WIAT-III. Day 1 covers general administration considerations as well as the specific demands of each subtest. Day 2 focuses on scoring the written response subtests as well as using the WIAT-III Scoring software to assess student essays. A one-hour webinar to answer any questions/concerns regarding WIAT-III administration will be available to participants on January 29, 2019 from 3:45 to 4:45. Participants are asked to bring a WIAT-III test kit and an unused copy of the WIAT-III administrator’s booklet and student response booklet for use during the workshop. If this is not possible, please let Brent know ASAP so other arrangements can be made.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
