Participation Request Letter
Dear School Psychologist,
Our names are Kathrin Maki and John Kranzler. We are faculty in the School Psychology program at the University of Florida and are writing to ask for your participation in a study we are conducting. The study was approved by your state school psychology association executive or research board and the University of Florida’s Institutional Review Board.
The study is examining school psychologists’ decision-making regarding identification of students with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). If you choose to participate, you will be asked to review SLD identification criteria and a vignette describing hypothetical student evaluation data. Please consider spending approximately 20 minutes to complete the study. Your participation will be anonymous.
Each 10th participant will earn a $20.00 gift card.
