Progress Monitoring Data Region 8 ESC Janis McClure Also Known As
Definition: Progress Monitoring Progress monitoring is a scientifically based practice that is used to assess students’ academic performance and evaluate the effectiveness of instruction. Progress monitoring can be implemented with individual students or an entire class.
Overview of Objectives What progress monitoring tells us as instructional leaders Methods to monitor progress Resources to help
Terms IEP- Individual Education Plan- the entire document-not just educational goals. PLAAFP- Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance BIP- Behavior Intervention Plan
Instructional Leadership Data Gathered from Multiple Sources PLAAFP Based on data IEP Based on PLAAFP
Instructional Leadership Progress Monitoring tells us Where are students academically and functionally (baseline) Progress on current objectives and/or goals Where we need to target instruction Where our students are going (planning for next steps)
Defensible DATA gathered during progress monitoring justifies our instruction and lets us know if what we are doing is working.
Grades are not an adequate measure of progress on IEP goals and objectives. A student can be “passing” but still be two years behind peers in a subject. It is the progress monitoring on IEP goals that will help determine actual progress.
Ways to Collect Data ➮ Level of behavior ➮ Running Records ➮ Work Sample Analysis ➮ Time Sampling ➮ Checklists ➮ Rating Scales ➮ Task Analysis ➮ Frequency Counts ➮ Curriculum Based Assessments ➮ Norm/Criterion Referenced Assessment ➮ Developmental Assessments
Level of Behavior Ways to Rate: Likehart scale with numbers 1 Calm behavior 5- Out of Seat calling out 10 removed from room- throwing things
Level of Behavior Mild Takes 1-2 Redirects goes back on task Moderate Takes 5-6 Redirects goes back on task in under 10 minutes Severe More than 5 redirects- Unable to get back on task Severity Scale
Resources Texas Statewide Leadership for Autism- Behavior Module Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence Numerous modules on behavior, such as reinforcement, extinction etc. Indiana Resource Center for Autism-Behavior Articles
Running Record A running record, a Reading Recovery assessment developed by Marie Clay, is a means of documenting a student’s individual reading of a continuous text. A running record can provide a way to assess an individual student’s reading, determine appropriate levels of text for reading, and to inform teaching. Taken at intervals, these records can show growth over time in reading skills. From LEARN NC, Ongoing Assessment for Reading by Jeanne Gunther.

Work Sample Analysis Article from Special Needs Resource Magazine with good information on how to use works samples and the article has downloadable stickers to use with student work samples. Click on “Work Sample Stickers”.
Work Sample Analysis Gives the level of support needed to be successful Can generate more accurate picture of mastery level Example: John completes single digit addition with staff support and visual supports to an accuracy level of 80%.
Time Sampling A sampling interval is the amount of time between data points and how often a person is recording data. Most often used with behavior to observe behavior such as out-of-seat behavior. Easy way to track behavior for a specific period of time on more than one student.
Time Sampling Data Collection Sheet- Multiple Students Observer: Ms. Elm Environment: Math Class Student #1 : Anne Target Behavior: Off task Student #2 : Mark Target Behavior: Off task Student #3 : Joe Target Behavior: Off task Observation Period: 10 Minute Intervals (e.g., 1 min, 5 min, 10 min, 15 min) Time Sample: Mark + if behavior occurred during the interval and 0 if it did not Date: ____________ Start Time: ___________ Stop Time: _______________ Student Anne 2 Mark 3 Joe % of Intervals with behavior Student #1______#2________#3_________
Frequency Count How often a behavior occurs in a specified time. Often used with behavior TimeMonTuesWedThursFri 8-8:30 8: :30 Target Behavior: Refusing to do work Date:________

Task Analysis Task analysis is a process by which a task is broken down into its component parts. After breaking down a task each component of the task is taught until the student can master all parts of the task independently. al/articles/ aspx al/articles/ aspx

Curriculum Based Assessments Definitions of Curriculum-Based Assessment (CBA) The following definition comes from: Witt, J. C., Elliot, S. N., Daly III, E. J., Gresham, F. M., & Kramer, J. J. (1998). Assessment of at- risk and special needs children. (2nd ed.). Boston, MA: McGraw-Hill.
"The term curriculum-based assessment (CBA) means simply measurement that uses "direct observation and recording of a student's performance in the local curriculum as a basis for gathering information to make instructional decisions" (Deno, 1987, p. 41).... CBA has also been referred to as direct assessment of academic skills…these approaches have emphasized direct, repeated assessment of academic target behaviors (Lentz, 1988b). In each academic area, probes are developed (e.g. brief reading passages, short spelling lists, samples of math items from the curriculum, etc.) and these probes are used to collect data on student performance. These probes are developed from…materials that make up the child's curriculum. … CBA provides a structured way to see how well a child performs on the materials the teachers is assigning the class…” (p ).

Organize Decide what data you need to keep and how. Decide how often you need to take data. Use what you are already required to track-benchmarks, TPRI etc. Have data keeping method handy-ex. frequency count sheet Set aside consistent time to assess, probe, do benchmarks etc. Have paras help and train them.
Trying to teach without data is like wondering in the desert without your camel to guide you. You have no idea where you’ve been and no idea of where you are going. You could walk in circles for years.
Data Use data, take the more direct path out of the desert.
