  • Review agenda

  • What else were you hoping I would address when you heard I was presenting?

  • What is the place of progress monitoring (PM) data within a comprehensive assessment system?

  • How can Special Education (SpEd) teachers use technology tools to record and view PM data?

  • How can SpEd teachers use screening and PM data to set goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • How can SpEd teachers use PM data to help determine whether students are eligible for SpEd and/or identify whether students are meeting SpEd goals?




4. How can Special Education (SpEd) teachers use technology tools to record and view progress monitoring (PM) data?

  • In reading and math

    • AIMSweb

    • Chart Dog - http://www.jimwrightonline.com/php/chartdog_2_0/chartdog.php

  • For behavior

    • Chart Dog

    • AIMSweb Behavior


Using aimsweb r cbm oral reading fluency orf measure to predict performance on mca ii reading test

R-CBM ORF tools to record and view progress monitoring (PM) data?is…

Nationally-normed, standardized test of how many words student can read correctly in 1 minute

Moderately correlated with MCA-II Reading test scores (correlation = .5 to .7)

Easy to administer

Sensitive to change, even when given as weekly progress monitoring tool

R-CBM ORF is NOT…

The only component of reading we should be concerned about

The only measure of reading you should administer, especially if students identified as at-risk based on ORF

5. How can SpEd teachers use screening and PM data to set goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?


Start by abandoning old goals
Start By Abandoning Old Goals goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • Student will perform spelling skills at a high 3rd grade level.

  • Student will alphabetize words by the second letter with 80% accuracy.

  • Student will read words from the Dolch Word List with 80% accuracy.

  • Student will master basic multiplication facts with 80% accuracy.

  • Student will increase reading skills by progressing through the reading program with 90% accuracy as determined by teacher-made fluency and comprehension probes by October 2013.

  • Student will be a better reader.

  • Student will read aloud with 80% accuracy and 80% comprehension.

  • Student will make 1 year's gain in general reading from K-3.

  • Students will read 1 story per week.

Individualized goal setting strategies
Individualized Goal Setting Strategies goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • Determine the Present Level of Performance (PLOP) based on Survey-Level Assessment (SLA)

  • Know the Time Frame for the Goal (typically the “anniversary date”--1 year.

  • Determine the Level of Curriculum That Defines Success and Reduces the Gap

  • Define the Criterion for Acceptable Performance (CAP)


5. How can SpEd teachers use screening and PM data to set goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • Using norms v. target scores v. growth rates to set goals

    • Local v. national norms

  • Setting grade level v. instructional level v. goal level goals


5. How can SpEd teachers use screening and PM data to set goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • If student near grade level, set goal at grade level and PM with grade level probes


5. How can SpEd teachers use screening and PM data to set goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • If student far below grade level, set goal that is rigorous, yet reasonable

    • NOT at grade level BUT

    • NOT at instructional level either

    • At level that will significantly close gap to same grade peers

    • PM in goal level material

  • Can use Survey Level Assessment (SLA) to determine

Ginny will read aloud 95 WRC with 3 or fewer errors when given a randomly selected Grade 4 reading passage by June 1, 2013


5. How can SpEd teachers use screening and PM data to set goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • “4 point decision rule”

    • Establish baseline

    • After establish baseline, collect at least 6 additional data points

      • If goal is to increase target skill or behavior

        • 4 consecutive data points below student’s goal or aimline -> adjust intervention

          • May mean adding intervention, adding/changing component of intervention, or even taking intervention away

        • 4 consecutive data points above student’s goal or aimline -> adjust goal or adjust/discontinue support


5. How can SpEd teachers use screening and PM data to set goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • If goal is to decrease target skill or behavior

    • 4 consecutive data points above student’s goal or aimline -> adjust intervention

      • May mean adding intervention, adding/changing component of intervention, or even taking intervention away

    • 4 consecutive data points below student’s goal or aimline -> adjust goal or adjust/discontinue support

Cautions when using 4 point decision rule
Cautions when using 4-point decision rule goals and monitor student progress toward those goals?

  • Experts suggest that need to collect at least 10 data points (maybe as many as 20) before making decision

    • Some even suggest collecting 3 data points each time PM to minimize error

  • Careful not to pay too much attention to individual data points since more likely to be affected by sources of error (e.g., student motivation, examiner differences, difficulty of particular passages)

  • Critical to do regular refresher trainings and fidelity checks with examiners to ensure don’t drift from original training


6. How can SpEd teachers use PM data to help determine whether students are eligible for SpEd and/or identify whether students are meeting SpEd goals?

Special Education Eligibility Decisions

  • If and when your district gets to point of using RtI SLD eligibility criteria

    • Need 12 data points over at least 7 weeks

    • Data must show student not responding to at least 2 research-based interventions

      • Inadequate growth rate

    • Student’s achievement level must be below the national or state 5th percentile on most recent standardized measures related to referral concern
