Introductions and overview l.jpg
Introductions and Overview

  • Anne Foegen

  • Pam Stecker

  • Session Overview

    • Formative assessment and mathematics progress monitoring

    • Brief summary of traditional tools

Formative assessment l.jpg
Formative Assessment

  • Formative assessment involves using feedback from learning activities to adapt teaching to better meet students’ needs

  • Formative assessment includes both formal and informal tools and strategies

  • Progress monitoring is one type of formative assessment


General definition of progress monitoring l.jpg
General Definition of Progress Monitoring

  • Collecting and evaluating data to make decisions about the adequacy of student progress toward a goal

  • Evaluating student rate of change (slope) as compared to the slope of anticipated progress

  • Informing teacher planning for instruction


Characteristics of progress monitoring measures l.jpg
Characteristics of Progress Monitoring Measures

  • Technically sound measures

  • Multiple forms of the same measure

  • Assessment systems that are sensitive to student growth

  • Standardized administration procedures

  • Frequent measurement (occurs at least monthly)

The P.T.A. will buy a Summit School

T-Shirt for each student who goes

Jeff wheels his wheelchair for 33 hours

to summer school. Each shirt costs

a week at school and for 28 hours a week

$4.00. How much money will the

Yearly progress pro tm l.jpg
Yearly Progress ProTM

  • Mixed computation and problem solving

  • Developed for Grades 1-8

  • Web-based with multiple, alternate forms per grade level

  • Timed for 15 minutes with 30 grade-level problems

  • Multiple choice with some items in free- response format

  • Answers scored as correct or incorrect


Yearly progress pro tm22 l.jpg
Yearly Progress ProTM

  • Skills feedback for progress monitoring

  • In addition to progress monitoring, teachers may select specific skills for custom-made practice tests

  • Teachers may select skills for instructional support by assigning corresponding tutorials

    • Examples demonstrating skill

    • Practice items with selection of response given as correct or incorrect

    • Practice quiz (independent practice) on skill

  • Correlations with other high-stakes mathematics measures are moderate to high with higher correlations typically observed in elementary grade levels

  • Also examining performance of students with disabilities


Middle school research findings l.jpg
Middle School Research Findings exercise but also illustrates how items are presented (one by one) on progress monitoring measure

  • Different measures may be needed for screening and progress monitoring

    • More comprehensive measures (reflecting a broad representation of the annual curriculum) predict later performance on high-stakes tests more accurately, but are often less sensitive to changes in student performance

  • Strongest correlations with high-stakes test scores obtained with district-developed screening tools, grade 6 concepts & applications
