A report is a set of test scores (up to 12) from a single school evaluation, an outside evaluation, or a combination of reports.
MULTIPLE REPORT PLANS provide various numbers of reports depending user needs. Those who would benefit from using MULTIPLE REPORT PLANS would include public and private school systems, colleges and university training institutions, private practice evaluators (psychologists), school and private attorneys, and advocates.
Colleges and universities offering evaluation services to parents or schools may also find this program of benefit when explaining the results to parents or school systems. Institutes of Higher Education will find the SEDS program useful as part of the training of undergraduate and graduate students who are needing to better understand test scores found in evaluations. Additionally, graduate programs in school psychology or educational evaluations can include the SEDS as part of the training to enhance graduates’ abilities to explain the meaning of test scores to individuals or groups of individuals in order to make informed decisions with regard to eligibility determinations and the writing of needs-based IEPs.
