Specialist teacher assessors work increasingly in all sectors of British education. As key personnel in higher education institutions, they are responsible for conducting essential diagnostic psychometric assessments for students. In its guidance on assessment and identification of students with specific learning difficulties (SpLD) in higher education, the UK government identifies procedures for good practice.This book is a practitioner 's guide for specialist teachers working with SpLD students in higher education institutions and provides the background to the practitioner 's certificate introduced in 2006. It offers practical suggestions to aid specialist tutors who are supporting and assessing students from all academic fields. It indicates formats for assessments to help specialist tutors comply with the new regulations and helps tutors provide reasonable adjustments for students that do not compromise academic standards.
