Screening identifies who might have a problem; it is an initial assessment procedure that allows individuals who require a complete evaluation to be identified

Reliability The consistency of a test or a procedure over repeated administrations and by different examiners; example: A test is given to a client by 2 separate clinicians and yields identical results. This would show excellent reliability of the test.
Validity The extent to which a test measures what it claims to measure; example: Giving a vocabulary test to a client to determine their IQ. This test would not have validity because there are multiple areas of IQ, not just vocabulary.
Norm-referenced test Standardized instruments that can be used to compare an individual's performance to the performance of others with similar demographic characteristics such as age and gender. (Comparing to others)
Criterion referenced test Allows us to measure skills in terms of absolute levels of mastery. They are useful in establishing baseline functioning, developing intervention targets, and to document progress.
Standardized score a derived score so that raw scores from the different tests can be compared and the mean and SD are consistent
Age equivalent a person's raw score is the average performance for a given grade (expressed in grades and tenths of grades (6.2 = 6th grade, second month)
Percentile ranks percentage of people in the norming sample who scored below a given raw score
What does "conflict of interest" for SLPs mean? A conflict of interest occurs when a SLP or an audiologist accepts personal or financial gifts from clients or manufacturers that compromise professional judgement because there are strings and/or expectations attached.
