How do online psychoeducational assessments work?

Using standardized assessments backed by research for remote use, and materials adapted for proper online delivery, PresenceLearning’s network of school psychologists use our secure online platform to utilize a combination of direct student assessment, standardized assessment tools, student work samples, clinical observation (via webcam), records review, parent/teacher/student interviews, developmental/medical histories, and norm-referenced-standardized rating scales.

Remote school psychologists start by joining the assessment planning meeting with the school team to determine the appropriate plan. Students are tested individually in a quiet, confidential environment, monitored by an onsite proctor who is directed by the remote school psychologist and has no clinical duties. The stimulus books and flip charts are licensed from the publishers and collaboratively digitized by PresenceLearning. Students view the stimuli on the computer screen and respond just as they would in person.

A document camera at the testing site enables the school psychologist to observe students as they complete response booklets or use manipulatives. Once the test is complete, the onsite proctor sends the student response booklet to the school psychologist, who scores it and writes a report which they share at the results and eligibility meeting.

What does the research say?

Research conducted by Dr. A. Jordan Wright, Clinical Assistant Professor of Counseling Psychology at NYU Steinhardt and a leading researcher on psychological assessment, demonstrated that, when delivered on a teletherapy platform built to minimize deviations from in-person assessment, live, online administration of the Woodcock-Johnson® IV (WJIV™) and the WISC®-V assessments by credentialed school psychologists produces valid results.
