Statement from Riverside Insights (Woodcock-Johnson):
"During this time when direct contact with other individuals is limited, unavailable, or unadvised, we realize standard administration of the WJ Suite of assessments may not be an option. Riverside Insights is partnered with a company called Presence Learning. This company offers the ability to administer the WJ IV assessments remotely, by displaying the content of the test book on screen to the examinee, while the examiner watches performance through a camera. This procedure does require a proctor to be present with the student. In addition to Presence Learning, a company called eLuma allows for remote administration of the WJ IV as well, although their administration requires the presence of a test book at both sites, since the content is not on screen. This procedure also requires a proctor to be with the examinee. At this time, these are the only 2 options endorsed by Riverside Insights. Please feel free to reach out to either Presence Learning or eLuma to inquire about remote administration, as well as best practices in remote administration."
