Title Date Overview
POSTPONED - EBRI: Diagnostic Assessments of Reading (Online Course)

Learn how to administer and interpret diagnostic reading assessments for adult learners, how to build individual reading profiles, and how to use this information to plan effective evidence-based reading instruction (EBRI). This course will include how to remotely conduct a diagnostic reading interview, including the background questionnaire and assessments of Word Reading, Oral Vocabulary, and Oral Reading Fluency.

Please note: STAR training also fills this prerequisite, so STAR-trained practitioners do not need to take this course, but can choose to do so as a refresher.

Overview of EBRI - November (Online)

The brief webinar is the first step on your evidence-based reading instruction (EBRI) journey, providing an introduction and overview of EBRI. It is a prerequisite for all other EBRI offerings. (Note: STAR training also fills this prerequisite, so STAR-trained practitioners do not need to take this Overview.)
