The terms normative sample and standardization sample refer to the same concept and are often used interchangeably. A norm referenced test uses a normative or standardization sample from the general population to determine what is “typical” or “normal” in that population.
Fast mapping is a type of novel word-learning, dynamic assessment used in evaluating preschool and school-aged children.
Language sampling is an essential part of any speech and language evaluation and research has shown it to be less biased against culturally and linguistically diverse children than standardized tests.
Bias occurs when one interprets or judges others based on their own background and experience and it can result in viewing other practices, expectations and perceptions as inferior or wrong and can result in many different consequences.
