SEL PQA External Assessor Reliability Training (Jan 17-18)

SEL PQA External Assessor Reliability Training at a regional workshop, within another network. Reliable assessors must meet rigorous standards that require in-depth exploration of the SEL Program Quality Assessment (PQA). Participants must attend the entire training, over the course of which, they will watch a video and practice scoring the PQA under the guidance of an experienced reliable rater from the Weikart Center. The training culminates in a distance video reliability check where participants must achieve 80% reliability in order to pass. Participants who pass will be provisionally* endorsed SEL PQA external assessors for 1 year. Participants who do not reach reliability during the video scoring portion of the training will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with our researcher to discuss scoring feedback. Endorsement may then be provided at the discretion of the Weikart Center.
 
Please note: currently endorsed assessors will still need to maintain their Youth or School Age PQA reliability through a webinar or self-paced option in order to continue to score the SAPQA or the YPQA. Online options for endorsement in the SEL PQA will not be available in FY18.

*Provisional endorsement means that the master scores and videos will not have had our usual 1 year vetting process.

Objectives

By the end of this training you will be able to:

  • Understand how Youth PQA and SEL PQA are similar and different
  • Understand intent and purpose of new SEL PQA items and scales
  • Practice scoring new SEL items
