    Hi Claudia – In order to document that a student requires special education and there is an educational impact, most teams will complete a standardized academic evaluation such as the WJ. But, your supervisor is correct – nowhere in the law does it state that a standardized test must be administered. Your team needs to feel comfortable and confident that all areas of suspected disability are evaluated and that the assessment has determined all areas of need for the student. There are many ways to obtain that information.

    My teams tend to always give a standardized assessment even when we are looking at OHI because we tend to also be ruling in/out SLD.
