Progress Monitoring In Special Education FAQs
Progress monitoring is the systematic and frequent measuring of student progress against their annual IEP goals. It looks different depending on the IEP goals of the student. However, there are some general steps to follow when implementing regular progress monitoring:
- Locating annual IEP goals
- Inputting collected data
- Noting student progress
- Demonstrating measurable data progress
Starting with the IEP goals ensures that progress tracking is hinged on defined targets and benchmarks. It will also enable a systematic, quantitative, and objective reporting of the child’s progress in the form of concrete evidence.
When monitoring IEP goals, make sure that you use curriculum-based measurements and quantitative data, conduct the data collection frequently, and input the data in a reliable special education solutions platform like SpedTrack!
Collecting data toward a student’s progress should be done daily and assessed quarterly. Frequent monitoring provides meaningful data and insights on the child’s progress.
Specifically, quarterly progress monitoring in IEPs benefits both the child and the IEP Team as it:
- Sets a baseline
- Measures student progress by tracking collected data points
- Documents efforts provided to meet the IEP goals
As defined by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and as an outcome of the Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District court case, where a student with autism wasn’t making any progress on their IEP goals, progress monitoring ensures that student progress is accurately tracked.
Furthermore, progress monitoring is now used during instructional decision-making to determine whether a student is receiving their minimum educational benefit, entitled to them by the outcome of this court case.
