Title

Using iPads to Teach Assessment to Pre-Service School Psychologists

Lead Author Affiliation

Educational and School Psychology

Introduction

New technologies are advancing administration and scoring of assessments for school psychologists. With more efficiency and portability, the use of web-based instruments can improve the assessment process for school psychologists (Jellins, 2015). As the field of school psychology incorporates more technology into practice, it is only a matter of time before most school psychologists’ test kits will consist of tablets or other technological devices. In 2013 an internal university technology grant was written for the School of Education to purchase 24 iPads for use in assessment-related courses.
