Afternoon Half-Day Workshops (CONTINUED)
1:00–4: 50 p.m.
Assessment: Practice and
In this intermediate workshop, the presenters address how
technology-based tools (such as Q-interactive developed by
Pearson) are changing the daily workflow and professional
obligations of practitioners. Paradigm shifts introduce new
questions and challenges for our field. This workshop will
focus on: (a) new psychometric and interpretive considerations introduced by digital testing, (b) legal issues pertaining
to records management, (c) ethical/practice-related issues
such as client management and privacy, and (d) the training
required to use the tools in practice.

143 Testing Accommodations for
People With Disabilities:
People with disabilities are often given tests with modified
administration conditions (e.g., additional time, a private testing location). Psychologists are often asked to make recommendations regarding accommodations on tests in a variety of
contexts (e.g., classroom tests, admissions tests, certification
tests). In this intermediate workshop, participants will learn the
legal framework for determining eligibility for accommodations
and research-based principles for making accommodations recommendations for children and adults with various disabilities.
Examples will focus on disabilities that psychologists diagnose
(learning, cognitive, and psychiatric disabilities).
Leaders: Lawrence J. Lewandowski, PhD, Syracuse University;
Benjamin J. Lovett, PhD, Elmira College
