Standards Aligned Individualized Education Programs

Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance


Pattan s mission

The mission of the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN) is to support the efforts and initiatives of the Bureau of Special Education, and to build the capacity of local educational agencies to serve students who receive special education services.

PaTTAN’s Mission


Pde s commitment to least restrictive environment lre

Our goal for each child is to ensure Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams begin with the general education setting with the use of Supplementary Aids and Services before considering a more restrictive environment.

PDE’s Commitment to Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)

Present levels

Present Levels

Provide a summary of baseline data related to academic achievement and functional performance indicating the student’s strengths and needs as well as a description of how the disability effects progress in the general education curriculum

* Consider the 4 types of assessment

Present levels1

Present Levels

It is critical that assessment, present levels, goals and progress monitoring include both the instructional and grade levels

  • Instructional level alone does not meet the criteria of the general education curriculum

  • Grade level alone does not meet the criteria of an IEP based on identified skill needs

Present levels2

Present Levels

It is impossible to write clear and measurable annual goals if you don’t have clear and measurable present levels of academic achievement and functional performance.


Present levels include

Present Levels Include:

  • Present levels of academic achievement

  • Present levels of functional performance

  • Present levels related to current postsecondary transition goals (if a student is 14, or younger if determined by the IEP team)

  • Strengths/skills

  • Parental input and concerns

  • How student’s disability affects involvement and progress in the general education curriculum and his/her needs


Present levels must

Present Levels Must…

  • Be data driven (measurable and observable)

  • Provide a starting point (baseline) for development of measurable annual goals

  • Reference gaps in instructional level vs. grade level standards/expectations

  • Reference post-school transition goals

  • Include relevant, useful, understandable and measurable information


Present levels must1

Present Levels Must…

  • Incorporate information from all team members

  • Describe effect of disability on performance

  • Identify strengths

  • Prioritize needs

  • Guide development of other areas of the IEP


Let s examine

Let’s Examine…

“Jessie’s classroom performance is inconsistent.”

What is meant by classroom performance?

  • Maintains 3-ring binder of study guides for each core academic class

    What is meant by inconsistent?

  • Ranges from 1 – 8 missing guides per week

    Put it all together for a clearer statement:

    “Jessie maintains study guides for her academic classes, and averages 4 missing guides per week.”

Note: The above data is critical information for many students; however, today’s focus is on aligning IEPs to state promulgated standards.


Your perspective

Your perspective…

  • What might a student’s PLAAFP look like if all assessments and data were based on instructional level?

  • What might a student’s PLAAFP look like if all assessments and data were based on grade level?

  • How can we encourage teachers to include all four types of assessment data?
