Webinar for Quick, Formative, Formative and Valid Reading Assessment

About this webinar:

The PSI reading webinar explores how effective reading instruction and reading intervention require teachers to monitor students’ progress. Moreover, diagnosing reading problems requires teachers to isolate and assess reading competencies that are causing difficulties in reading.

The problem with many current reading assessments is that they are often long and involved processes or examine only one area of reading. In this webinar, Dr.Timothy Rasinski will present and demonstrate a simple yet valid approach to reading assessment, diagnosis and progress monitoring that takes a minimal amount of time. Audience members will leave the session with actionable insights and process for assessing their own students’ reading.

PSI Webinar – Threat Assessment in Schools


School personnel such as administrators, school psychologists, social workers and counselors are increasingly faced with complex situations where students have made violent threats toward others or even the entire school. Many of these threats today are posted online or elsewhere.

Unfortunately, there have been schools who have received negative publicity for how they evaluated violent threats and for failing to share information with authorities and parents. School administrators also face a very difficult decision about whether to evacuate the school and many schools have lost numerous days of academic time as a result of receiving violent threats.

Webinar Crisis Communications for School Officials

Join us for this important webinar on Wed, Jan 27, 2016 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST.

It’s been said that an organization’s largest uninsured asset is its reputation – an asset that can be significantly diminished in the face of an ineffective crisis response.  Indeed, effective crisis response has become even more challenging with the evolution of social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram

Hennes MainPicand Twitter, not to mention a 24/7 media environment. Given all the events we have witnessed in recent years, smart schools have a communications plan in place to make certain they are able to appropriately respond to these realities – and that those initiatives dovetail seamlessly with their emergency management plan. This short seminar will give you the tools you need to protect, defend and perhaps even enhance your organization’s reputation in the event of a crisis situation.

Register even if you are unable to attend the live event and we will send you a link to the recording after the webinar is completed!
