6SATELLITE CURRICULUM(non-academic) Early Childhood (ECH) designed for use with more severe children (functioning 0-60 months). Includes cognitive development, social skills, language skills, gross motor, fine motor, self-care and socialization skills.Independent Study Skills includes:compensatory techniques, task completion, time management, comprehension & recall, note taking, reference and test taking.Assessed using Observational ChecklistAFTER -(Adult Functional Training and Educational Rehabilitation)for students 7th grade or above who are functioning BELOW the third grade level and will graduate with a non-traditional diploma (ARD/transitional planning). Curriculum is designed to support the development of ITPs & desired outcomes looking at skills necessary for the student to achieve on one of three outcomes:LEVEL 1: Independent Living (probably have a job in the community)LEVEL 2: Semi-independent living (will probably work in a supervised setting and may live in a group home)LEVEL 3: Supported living (will probably develop community based skills within a fully supervised setting)
7SATELLITE CURRICULUM(non-academic) Speech- ages birth-adult- incorporates all areas addressed by speech services.PT/OT- ages birth-adult- a collection of goals and objectives designed to suit the special needs of the PT/OT clinicians and their students, including goals and objectives form other curricula.Adaptive Social Skills - ages birth-adult. Provides objectives for any student whose behavior is developmentally inappropriate. These objectives can be used with the clinically Emotionally Disturbed student, the student with a Behavior Management Program, as well as an autistic child. Includes attention to task, compliance, verbal behaviors, non-verbal behaviors and coping behaviors. Counselors will also find appropriate objectives within this curriculum.Assessed using Observational Checklist

10Sequence of Learner Objectives Annual Goal: The standards-based IEP goals are aligned with and facilitate the student’s achievement of state grade level standards (NASDSE). According to current regulations, the aligned standards-based IEP goal must contain the four components of timeframe, conditions, behavior, and criterion.Sequential task analysis of BenchmarksBOLD objectives are Benchmark (Test) skillsGrouped by sub-categoryConsistent throughout gradesSpecific, measurable, observable10
11Curriculum Questions?1. In the CLASS Sequence of Learner Objectives (SOLO), why are some of the objectives bolded and some aren’t? 2. In the CLASS program some of the objectives that have a line or an underscore before the code ( _M5.14a) and some don’t (M3.6). What does the underscore before the objective indicate?
12CLASS Assessment Process Assess the StudentStartSCORE the TestStart overCLASS Assessment ProcessTeach the IEPThe IEP development process is ultimately very simple…..Test-using data to determine functioning level which determines learning gapsScore the test, looking at 25%-75% masteryMark the Bubble Sheet with test items missed and needed prerequisites,Type the CLASS codes into the computer from the Bubble Sheet, NOT your SOLO- not a ‘cafeteria’get the IEP/ARD committee approval of the IEP, this is a consensus IEP, Draft until signed off on by all partiesthen I teach the IEP.Begin the process over when either the entire IEP has been mastered OR I need to include additional objectives (and take back to IEP/ARD meeting!)SPECIAL NOTES:What if two months into teaching the IEP, I find that the student has mastered ALL the IEP objectives? Listen for answers such as ‘start the process over again’, ‘you have to test again’, go back to ARD’ YES, I start the process over again, test, score, mark the bubble sheet, etc. etc. and get a NEW teaching plan for the student.How often do I have to repeat the process? “At least once a year”, “as often as necessary”. Yes, I repeat the process as often as necessary, but I MUST repeat the process at least once a year since at least once every year, we must conduct an annual review of the student’s IEP.Mark the BUBBLE SHEETType in CLASS CodesHave an IEP/ARD Meeting12
14The CLASS Assessment Process “Step by Step” ESTIMATE the student’s level of functioning from ALL available data sources (eligibility information, other assessment data, professional judgment, etc., etc.).2. CHOOSE the appropriate assessment for the instructional or subject area and print the student version of the Competency Test OR Observational Checklist from the computer.3. Complete the Observational Checklist AND/OR have the student take the Competency Test! WORST performance is best in order to determine IEP objectives. The Competency Test may administered to an individual student or a small group Note: There is minimal teacher/student interaction for Competency Tests4.SCORE THE COMPETENCY TEST- you’re ‘looking for’ a mastery range between 25%-75% ! (There is NO mastery range on an Observational Checklist)14
15SET TEST ASIDE (but save it!). MARK CODES for the missed (remember, these are BENCHMARK/tested) items on the “Bubble Sheet” (Pupil Progress Profile).SET TEST ASIDE (but save it!).OPEN THE CLASS TEXT to the Sequence of Learner Objectives in the subject area of the test.AMPLIFY TEST ITEMS the tested items: a) locate the 1st marked code on the Bubble Sheet in the skill sequence in CLASS curricula.b) Test items are bolded.c) Determine which, if any, of the preceding or prerequisite skills are needed for the student to master the benchmark (bolded test) item(s).d) Mark those items you have decided go with the ones missed on the Bubble Sheet.e) Continue this process with each missed test item.SELECT OBJECTIVES the number of objectives (or as determined by district/coop) that can be taught/mastered during the IEP year. Objectives can be targeted across several grade levels for each student.“TEACH” the IEP (which is a ‘teachable learning plan!).15

22A ‘little’ Curriculum & Assessment Review! How do I determine the appropriate assessment for a student?How and where do I find the student copy and teacher copy of the test?On the selected test, what does the “M 3” above the logo tell me?Below the logo there is “TTMC=and two #’s”, what does this mean and why is it important?There is a ‘code’ before each CLASS benchmark objective (e.g. M3.6). What does that code mean?How do I ‘score’ the test for correct and incorrect responses?After the student has completed the competency test (or the teacher has completed the Observation Checklist), what is my ‘next’ step (what do I go get)?On the Bubble Sheet what does an ‘open’ circle/bubble mean?Once I have gone to the appropriate grade/area curriculum (e.g. math), why are some of the objectives bolded and some are not?Once I have selected the objectives that need to be included on the IEP, what do I need to take to the computer to develop the IEP?

Other reviewed data sources may be added ]]Based on collected and reviewed data, Joe’s state standard, related and/or associated knowledge and skill STRENGTH areas include:Joe’s identified state standard, related and/or associated skills and knowledge area(s) of NEED include:According to the identified needs of Joe, the following related services, supplemental aids and/or supports may be needed to attain the annual goal(s) and make progress in the general education curriculum:[[ insert: related services, supplemental aids or supports; none needed; or See ARD documentation ]]The ARD Committee document will contain any necessary individual accommodations and/or modifications that the IEP Team identified as necessary for Joe to achieve progress toward the academic and functional goals.Joe’s disability affects his involvement and progress in the general education curriculum in the following way(s): [[ user created text addressing how the student’s disability impacts involvement/progress ]].Editing the PLAAFP Statement(Computer automatically transfers from the STRENGTH screen the specific identified strength areas.

31EACH Annual goal(s) AND STOs/benchmarks objectives MUST contain these FOUR COMPONENTS: TIMEFRAME: identifies the amount of time in the goal/benchmark period and is usually specified in the number of weeks OR a certain date of completion.CONDITONS : specifies the manner in which progress toward the goal/benchmark occurs. Conditions describe the specific resources that must be present for the child to reach the goal. The condition of the goal should relate to the behavior being measured.BEHAVIOR: clearly identifies the skills or performance that is being measured. It represents an action that can be directly observed and measured.CRITERION: identifies how much, how often, or to what standard the behavior must occur in order to demonstrate that the goal/benchmark has been achieved. The goal/benchmark criterion specifies the amount of growth that is expected.
