Overview This comprehensive guide helps examiners who use the Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-Educational Battery Revised in school settings to translate these test results into meaningful information for programme development. The guide is organized into several chapters. The first chapter presents a brief overview of the diagnostic/prescriptive process. The second describes the Woodcock-Johnson Revised (WJ-R) tests and clusters and the wide range of interpretative information available. Subsequent chapters directly address performance in the four curricular areas assessed by the WJ-R Tests of Achievement - reading, written language, knowledge, and mathematics. Each chapter presents information on test content, procedures for error analysis, additional informal assessment, modifications and compensatory strategies, and several research-supported instructional methods. The last chapter addresses the relationship between the WJ-R Tests of Cognitive Ability and the Tests of Achievement. Relevant research is presented, and specific modifications are suggested for students with low performance in a cognitive area. With careful analysis of a student's WJ-R performance, an examiner can gain important insights into both cognitive and academic strengths and weaknesses. When supplemented with informal assessments and classroom observations, appropriate individualized instructional programmess can be designed. This guide establishes the relationship between the interpretation of assessment results and instructional decision-making.
