Objective 2: Review the differences between diagnostic tests and cognitive tests for educational assessment purposes.
Educational testing is used to determine how students are performing in the educational environment, problems with learning, readiness, and cognitive ability. These are all important areas when looking at current progress as well as future direction for students. Diagnostic testing is used to look for problem areas in learning and what difficulties students may face. Cognitive testing is just as important and assesses reasoning. Testing allows educators to assist students and determine if services may be needed, what type of services may be needed, identify strengths and weaknesses, and accurate grade level placement.
