The Iowa Eligibility & Evaluation Standards Training: Providing a foundational understanding of the ‘what and why’ of The Iowa Eligibility & Evaluation Standards.
This training provides foundational knowledge on The Iowa Eligibility and Evaluation Standards (December, 2015). This training is intended to provide the foundation for sound decisions and consistent statewide practices related to eligibility decisions including suspecting a disability, determining eligibility and developing Individual Education Plan Services. This training is intended for professionals who evaluate students for special education in Iowa and their leaders who supervise or provide related professional learning.
There are two items you will need to complete PRIOR to our first session together:
1. Please complete a short Pre-assessment
2. Please complete the Key Beliefs Survey found as a part of the State’s online course on the eligibility standards. You can access the online course at
