1 Updated Guidance on Use of BDI-2 Screening Test for Child Outcomes Measurement System August 26 th & 31 st, 2010 – State Leadership Team Calls - Indicators C3 & B7

2 Today, we’ll talk about Memorandum released on August 20 th with more detailed guidance on use of the BDI-2 Screening Test Update information of interest ◦ Status of data entry for ◦ Webinars on use of Data Manager reports ◦ Resources under development 2

3 Review of Memo Background ◦ Memo relates to use of Screening Test for the purpose of the Child Outcomes Measurement System ◦ It does not address eligibility considerations ◦ Screening Test results are not sufficient information for determining eligibility as an infant, toddler, or preschool child with a disability 3

4 Review of Memo Definition – “Level Comparable to Same Age Peers” ◦ For Florida’s Child Outcomes Measurement System, this is defined to mean > -1.5 standard deviations (SD) below the mean on either the BDI-2 full assessment or Screening Test 4

5 Review of Memo Application of definition of “level comparable to same age peers” to the administration of Screening Test ◦ On the Screening Test, you will use the standard deviation “cutoff score” of -1.5 SD below the mean ◦ A result of “Pass” in a domain means that the child performed higher than the cutoff score of -1.5 SD below the mean ◦ A result of “Refer” in a domain means the child performed at or below the cutoff score of SD below the mean 5

6 Review of Memo Throughout the memo we have referenced entering either “raw or item- level” data into the electronic assessment record. ◦ Each Local Early Steps (LES) and school district has made a decision with regard to whether they are entering raw or item-level scores in the BDI-2 Data Manager™ (Data Manager) 6

7 Review of Memo – “C-In” If an assessment other than the BDI-2 is being used for eligibility determination ◦ You may start the accountability assessment for Child Outcomes Measurement System with the Screening Test ◦ For any domains on the Screening Test that were not scored “pass,” administer the complete BDI-2 assessment for those specific domain(s) 7

8 Review of Memo – “C-In” Use of Data Manager ◦ Enter the raw or item-level scores for all domains of the Screening Test in the Data Manager; select the cutoff level of -1.5 SD ◦ For any domain scored “refer,” you must create a new assessment record for the complete BDI-2 and enter the raw or item- level scores for all the domains of the complete BDI-2 assessment that the child did not pass on the Screening Test 8

9 Review of Memo – Data Manager Procedures To create a new assessment record ◦ Search for child’s existing record in Data Manager ◦ Select “New Complete Assessment” ◦ Enter the assessment scores for whatever domains were administered 9

10 Review of Memo – Data Manager Procedures If item-level data are being entered, ALL item-level scores for a particular domain must be entered, including scores for items that were administered as part of the Screening Test and were not re- administered because the follow-up complete assessment was conducted within the 2-week window permitted by the BDI-2 Examiner’s Manual 10

11 Review of Memo – “C-Out” NOT Transitioning to Part B Preschool It is allowable to start the accountability assessment for exit with the Screening Test Enter the raw or item-level scores from the Screening Test into the Data Manager For any domains scored “refer” ◦ Administer the complete assessment in those specific domains ◦ Enter the scores from the complete assessment in the Data Manager into a new assessment record. 11

12 Review of Memo – “C-Out” Transitioning to Part B Preschool If the BDI-2 will not be used for Part B eligibility consideration, it is allowable to begin the exit assessment with the Screening Test Enter the raw or item-level scores of the Screening Test into the Data Manager For any domains scored “refer” ◦ Administer the complete assessment in those domains ◦ Enter the scores from the complete assessment in the Data Manager into a new assessment record. 12

13 Review of Memo – “B-In” [NOT Transitioning from Part C] If the BDI-2 will not be used for Part B eligibility consideration it is allowable to begin the entry assessment with the Screening Test Enter the raw or item-level scores of the Screening Test into the Data Manager For any domains scored “refer” ◦ Administer the complete assessment in those domains ◦ Enter the scores from the complete assessment in the Data Manager into a new assessment record. 13

14 Review of Memo – Data Manager Procedures To create a new assessment record ◦ Search for child’s existing record in Data Manager ◦ Select “New Complete Assessment” ◦ Enter the assessment scores for whatever domains were administered 14

15 Review of Memo – Data Manager Procedures If item-level data are being entered, ALL item-level scores for a particular domain must be entered, including scores for items that were administered as part of the Screening Test and were not re- administered because the follow-up complete assessment was conducted within the 2-week window permitted by the BDI-2 Examiner’s Manual 15

16 Review of Memo – Exit from Part B Preschool (“B-Out”) For children determined eligible in the sole area of speech impairment (speech sound, voice, or fluency disorders) who on entry were functioning comparable to same age peers [on either Screening Test or complete assessment] ◦ Allowable to use the Screening Test ALONE at exit, even if child has been later determined as having another disability 16

17 Review of Memo – “B-OUT” for “Speech Impaired Only” The raw or item-level scores of the Screening Test must be entered into the Data Manager. No further assessment is required, even if the child scores “refer” on one or more domains. 17

18 Review of Memo – “B-Out” For all other children exiting preschool ◦ It is allowable to start the accountability assessment with the Screening Test Enter the raw or item-level scores of the Screening Test into the Data Manager For any domains scored “refer” ◦ Administer the complete assessment in those domains ◦ Enter the scores from the complete assessment in the Data Manager into a new assessment record. 18

19 Scenario - For children older than age 30 months, for whom the Screening Test is administered by the LES and all domains are “pass” ◦ If Part B preschool has determined the child eligible based on other assessment procedures, ◦ Screening Test administered by the LES may still be used as “Data Point - B IN (Assessed by Part C)” ◦ Remember – child would not be in the Part C outcomes system 19

20 Remember this resource The BDI-2 Data Manager™, Guide to Use for the Florida Birth to Five Child Outcomes Measurement System, located on the TATS website Has been updated to include references to Screening Test. See Chapter 3 – “Adding Assessment Data” 20

21 21 Questions?

22 Assessment Data for The state will export all local data in order to analyze and prepare the Annual Performance Report All data from exit assessments administered in were due in the Data Manager on AUGUST 13 th !! We have heard from a few of you about issues It is imperative that we know right away of any other issues We need any data entry completed immediately! 22

23 Webinars on Data Manager Reports Two calls completed - one more scheduled Date: Thursday, September 2, 2010 Time: 10:00-11:30 am, Eastern Daylight Time Go to https://hmhpub.webex.com/hmhpub/j.php?ED= &RG=1&UID= &RT=MiMxMQ%3 D%3D https://hmhpub.webex.com/hmhpub/j.php?ED= &RG=1&UID= &RT=MiMxMQ%3 D%3D 23

24 Lessons Learned from 1 st call We recognize that the complexity may overwhelm some We understand that the primary interest is in learning how to create lists that will assist you in knowing which children are due for exit assessment We have a solution in development that will simplify this process We will conduct follow-up calls to roll out solution 24

25 Resources Under Development “Refresher” resource for staff already trained in administration is in development Worked with staff of publisher in June to do taping of training on aspects of administration of full assessment and Screening Test with “real audience” [Thank You Pinellas County Schools!] This will be edited and posted as on-line modules and will “sit” on TATS website 25

26 Resources Under Development Manual on the Florida Child Outcomes Measurement System Under development through assistance of the University of Miami Will include content found in multiple documents in a single guide Once complete, will “roll out” through conference calls. 26

27 Thank You! We have come a long way thanks to your help, cooperation, and hard work The best is yet to come … ◦ Having data for consideration on what needs to happen to improve programs for our children! 27
