Although formal assessment provides the data necessary for placement in special education, we all know it is not always appropriate to use with ELL's. Has anyone had difficulty getting the school to accept information from dynamic assessment if results are not normed? I am familiar with the articles and Dynamic Assessment Intervention tool mentioned in a previous posting. Does anyone have experience using other kinds of dynamic assessment tasks, particularly with school age children? With that, does anyone have any insight into how they have interpreted results and distinguished difference vs. disorder for this age group?
