In this hour-long webinar, we provide an overview of how universal screening assessments are used to guide core instruction and identify students needing additional support beyond their core instruction in an equity-based MTSS practice.
Universal screening assessments create a systematic process of identifying at-risk students who do not meet grade-level expectations and “fall through the cracks.” The fidelity of this practice means that schools will be using universal screeners three times a year to identify support needs.
About this webinar:
During this webinar, you will learn best practices for using universal screening assessments, how and why we create tiering structures three times a year, and how tiering and universal screening practices can support equity.

About Dr. Eva Dundas: Dr. Dundas is the Chief Academic Officer at Branching Minds, where she pursues her mission to bridge the gap between the science of learning and education practice. Dr. Dundas has a Ph.D. in Developmental and Cognitive Psychology from Carnegie Mellon University where she conducted research on how the brain develops when children acquire visual expertise for words and faces. Her research also explores how the relationship between neural systems (specifically language and visual processing) unfolds over development, and how those dynamics differ with neurodevelopmental disorders like dyslexia and autism. She has published articles on that subject in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuropsychologia, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, and Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders. Dr. Dundas also has a M.Ed. in Mind, Brain, and Education from Harvard University; and a B.S. in Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh.
