I have a level 9 Swordmage and I just got Forceful Dismissal. One question I had about it was the push part: "push the target a number of squares equal to your Strength modifier." Does that strength modifier include my half-level bonus?

Thanks

No.

The half-level bonus is for attacks, defenses, and skill/ability checks. It does not apply to anything else, and especially not to damage or forced movement distances.

And to further clarify, Strength Mod refers to your strength stat -10, /2 rounded down. Strength Check refers to strength mod + 1/2 level bonus. –  Joshua Aslan Smith Jul 3 '13 at 18:43
