Example of selecting tests administered
Test summaries can be quickly created listing the composite and subtest scores of a test. An option of reporting introductions for tests as well as statements about the mean and standard deviation of a test score can also easily be added to a test summary. A percentile interpretation of a composite score can be easily added to a test summary. Strengths and weaknesses can easily be created by clicking on test names to make them red (weaknesses) or blue (strengths) to In addition, scaled and standard scores can be easily converted to standard deviation scores for determining special education eligibility for speech language services.
