This paper presents a framework to provide a structured approach for developing score reports for cognitive diagnostic assessments (CDAs). Guidelines for reporting and presenting diagnostic scores are based on a review of current educational test score reporting practices and literature from the...
Validating student score inferences using person fit statistic and verbal reports: A person-fit study for cognitive diagnostic assessmentDownload
The goal of this study was to investigate the usefulness of person-fit analysis in validating student score inferences in a cognitive diagnostic assessment. In this study, a two-stage procedure was used to evaluate person fit for a diagnostic test in the domain of statistical hypothesis testing....
Several studies have been conducted on the playingrelated physical injuries of college music students. In this study, a client-centered, occupation-based survey was administered to music majors at a large midwestern university. The primary objectives of the study were to examine which health...

Neurophysiological mechanisms of reading in alexia: Development of stimuli to examine semantic integration using the N400 responseDownload
In order for speech-language pathologists to improve therapy for acquired reading impairments, it is necessary to gain a better understanding of how sentences are processed during reading. Neural mechanisms underlying reading processes can be examined by using event-related potentials (ERPs)....
Storytelling tasks are commonly used to assess language in a functional context. However, the quality of children's stories can vary depending on how stories are elicited. Research (Pearce, 2003; Schneider & Dubé, 2005) has shown differences in children’s narratives when retelling stories from...
