Editor's Comments: Contemporary Research on Curriculum-Based Measurement
Susan M. Sheridan
School psychology is a field that is broad and far-reaching in scope and practice. As evident in the proceedings from the Futures Conference (School Psychology Review, 32; School Psychology Quarterly, 14), shifts in priority have occurred that depict the ever-changing and dynamic nature of the field. However, the focus is still the same—school psychologists are still innately and intimately concerned with children, families, and schools. Clearly, school psychologists’ roles are broadening and encompass a vast array of skills in consultation, collaboration, intervention, crisis management, and prevention (to name just a few). Our energies are now focused on broader groups of clients, including those with pediatric needs, socioemotional concerns, and low incidence disorders. We work with preschoolers as well as adolescents and young adults, and of course, the family and community systems within which they live.
