Special Education Assessment Frequently Asked Questions

The combination of the ABLLS-R and AFLS assessments have been combined as a CR Assessments product. The combination of two of the most used criterion-referenced assessments in behavior analysis allows educators and practicing behavior analysts the opportunity to assess skills of learners in real time and select and develop instructional objectives that are appropriate for the learner at the time of assessment.

The ABLLS-R and AFLS are criterion-referenced assessments designed to support skill acquisition targets for individuals with autism and IDD. The CR Assessments product should be used by trained educators and practicing behavior analysts.

The Assessment of Functional Living Skills

Utilizing both assessments in a combined platform supports the purpose of assessment, to identify strengths and weaknesses of a learner, identify individualized instructional targets, and allow assessors to select goals according to individual performance. The benefit is the assessment provides an overview of a learner across their lifespan from early childhood to adulthood.

CR Assessments support an efficient intake and ongoing process. Robust reporting and analytics features allow educators and practicing behavior analysts the opportunity to select skills observed during the assessment and populate objective treatment plans and IEPs.

CR Assessments support an efficient intake and ongoing process. Robust reporting and analytics features allow educators and practicing behavior analysts the opportunity to select skills observed during the assessment and populate objective treatment plans and IEPs.

The CR Assessments product offers reporting and analytics that report the percentage of skills mastered within each skill content area for one assessment as well as across multiple assessments. This reporting allows practicing behavior analysts the opportunity to report on a learner’s skills per domain versus a comprehensive score on the complete assessment. Practicing behavior analysts should also report on individualized skills acquired by their learner with each report.

The use of CR Assessments does not require or advise that all 2,400 skills are assessed in one period. Assessment of skills should be determined by a thorough records review, interview of the learner and their family, and proper selection of skills to observe directly from the information gathered.

This answer is dependent upon a few things. The assessor needs to consider how many skills have been mastered during the last assessment period. As the learner acquires skills, it is important to go back into the CR Assessments product to add more goals, so the learner is continuously acquiring new skills. Some school districts do have requirements on how often to assess and that is dependent upon the specific school district rules.
