    Dear school psychologists,
    We are asking for your help in completing an online survey part of a research study about school reintegration policies, procedures, and services that are available to youth returning to middle and high school following psychiatric hospitalization. It is open to all school psychologists working in a school serving middle or a high school students (i.e., serving grades 6-12). The survey is web-based and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.  For our results to accurately represent schools across the nation, your participation is very helpful and would be much appreciated.



    Take the School Reintegration Survey to complete the survey.


    You may also copy and paste the link below: https://unc.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1TBzjMd2ySclTsF


    If you decide to participate, you will be asked a series of questions about the schools in which you work, the populations your schools serve, and the available policies, procedures and services to students returning to schools following psychiatric hospitalization.

    Your answers will be completely confidential and will not be linked to any identifying information. This means that no identifying information (i.e. your name or email) can be associated with any of your responses.


    Your participation is completely voluntary. Although we hope you fill out the survey in its entirety, you can skip any questions you do not wish to answer.

    If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Marisa Marraccini, School of Education (919) 843-5099.


    This research has been reviewed by The University of North Carolina Institutional Review Board.

    Thank you!

    Educational Testing Service (ETS), which develops The Praxis Series™ assessments, is currently seeking active educators to serve on the School Psychologist test development standing committee. The Praxis Series™ assessments provide educational tests and other services that states use as part of their teacher licensure and certification process.


    The purpose of this committees is to advise ETS on developments in the field as well as to be actively involved in the development of the test. Committee members are paid an honorarium to serve on the committee.  The honorarium is dependent upon completion of the work requested. Typical work of the committee would be to write approximately 15 multiple-choice items and to review approximately 30 - 50 questions written by other committee members. In addition, committee members would be asked to review 1 - 2 test forms to ensure they adequately measure the knowledge and skills defined by the content domain, to review the Study Companion for the test to make sure the content domain is still relevant, and also to provide consultation concerning specific test questions flagged for review. Most of the work of the committee would be done via email or through a computer site, but the committee may convene virtually on occasion to discuss issues relevant to the field. There may not be much work in one year but more in the next.  The amount of work varies but if a committee member is unable to participate in a specific assignment, the committee member will be asked to perform the next assignment.  Committee members continue to serve on the committee until rotated off.


    ETS highly values the contributions of the educational community in the development of its tests. We hope that you are interested in serving in this important role. If you would like to be considered to serve on a committee, please go to the Praxis Test Development Standing Committee Registration and Recruitment Website (www.ets.org/praxiscomm), select the appropriate subject area, and complete the application.

    ETS selects individuals with the requisite experience and background and ensures that each committee is diverse with respect to gender, race and ethnicity, and state and grade level representation. If you are selected to serve as a standing committee member, ETS will contact you with a formal invitation and the details regarding your role and responsibilities. Please note that not being selected to serve on a committee is no reflection on your expertise and qualifications. It most likely means that all openings matching your profile were filled before ETS received your information. If you are not selected we will keep your information on file and will contact you in the future when a vacancy occurs on a committee for which you are qualified or for other opportunities that may arise. If you are unavailable to serve at this time but are interested in working with us in the future, please let us know. We rotate committee members on a regular basis in order to maximize the number of educators who contribute to the test development process.

    Would you please share this with the School Psychologists in your state who you feel would be good contributors to the test development process or please apply yourself.  We are also seeking educators to work on all Praxis subject tests and would welcome applications from educators in the other subject areas if your colleagues are interested.


    If you have any questions, please contact me either by phone at 609-683-2163 or via email at dmckee@ets.org
