Creating an original case study is the culminating assignment in his course. This case study will allow you to create a “real-life scenario” you might face working with children, and then asks you to use what you have learned in this course to analyze the problem and recommend solutions. As a practitioner beginning to work in the schools you will use many of the Educational Psychology knowledge and skills learned as part of this class. Not every student you meet will fit neatly into the same mold. As a result, you will have to take steps to better understand the student’s strengths and areas for improvement. To better understand each student you will likely use a combination of standardized testing, classroom observations, parent report, teacher report, student report, and current literature as a rationale for the action you choose to support the student. All of these methods are useful to better understand the student and are part of a comprehensive assessment occurring over time. This case study assignment has been designed to synthesize what you learned in this course. You will be working with a student, as you plan your course of action to support the student you have chosen to focus on. You will begin by making up a student you work with on a daily basis. You should select one student from the pre-K to high school levels for this study. You will need to come up with background information. The information could be similar to what is collected on this student using parent report, teacher report, or record review to better understand this student history. It is important to make a realistic case. Ultimately, you will have a document that clearly paints a picture of the student you have chosen for this assignment. Without meeting your student, the reader should be able to understand the student’s strengths and areas of concern. With this overall profile complete, you will design a support plan for the student that is relevant and meaningful for the student and will be clearly understood by all personnel working with the student. As this plan is constructed you will need to use the current research literature and our textbook to support your decisions about the case study. You should develop an action plan that will allow you to determine the level of functioning of the subject in his/her environment(s) using variety of educational (s) psychology measures.
