22 Familiarization with Manual Calendar p.12 Test Security p.16 Standards p.19 Student Information Form p.21 Requirements checklist p.22 Release/Permission p.23 Student Profile p. 24 Functional Performance Indicators p. 60 IEP Form p. 27 Data Collection p.33 Supporting Evidence p.38 Rubric p. 49

23 The IEP Where it all begins….

24 Alternate Achievement Standards IEP goals and objectives are written to meet standards Connecting the IEP to general curriculum The framework of the educational program Choice between two standards

25 The IEP Form Student name, age, grade, school IEP date and applicable amendment date Content and alternate standard Objective Specific PLEP Progress data 4 settings/supporting evidence type

26 Rubric and Glossary Understanding where the scores come from

27 IEP Timelines The foundation is the IEP 2-3 data collection periods are required to demonstrate progress over time and generalization An IEP written any time of year can be used Start collecting within 30 days of IEP

28 Writing Measurable Objectives

29 Writing measurable objectives Use FPIs as a guide A subset of the goal, not the whole goal Clearly identify the knowledge, skills and behaviors to be observed

30 Active vs. passive objectives Passive--define what the teacher will do Active--responses the student can make voluntarily of tolerate, participate, attend, be part of,

31 But what about the kids who… Need full personal care Have health, physical and/or other severe challenges Have little or no understandable communication

32 Consider quality of life Skills to take charge of his/her care Build on basic responses raise hand to show shes ready move hand to begin hand washing open mouth to eat look at item to choose blink to say yes look up to go outside

33 Write SMART Objectives S pecific M easurable A chievable/Action Words R ealistic/Relevant T ime-based

34 Some Questions to Ask Is it necessary for success in current and future environments? Does the family believe it is important? Does the objective specify a level of performance and an expectation that is reasonable? Can the objective be monitored frequently and repeatedly?

35 Writing a clear objective Conditions under which the student will demonstrate the objective May list some or all of the activities/settings in which the skill will be taught Clear, observable description of the skill Criteria for achievement of the skill Given a photo of the next class, Joe will walk independently to his next class within the school, in 5 minutes, 3 times per day for 10 days.

36 Writing a clear PLEP Describe clearly what you observe the student doing now in relation to the skill Include relevant information about what the student currently does and doesnt do Be specific Date the PLEP so its clear if this is from the original IEP or an amendment Given a picture of a class he is in, Joe talks about the class and waits for someone to take him. He walks throughout the school with an adult but gets distracted easily from where he is going when on his own.

37 The Alternate Assessment and the IEP Discuss the students alternate assessment results at the annual review Information from the assessment is one source of information contributing to the PLEP AA measures only a sampling of skills AA encourages increased access to the general curriculum and a greater range of skills considered for instruction
