Progress Monitoring

These resources were developed to support districts to collect, analyze and use data to make instructional decisions leading to improved educational outcomes for students with disabilities.

This webcast highlights the key features of the Goal Monitoring tool found in Infinite Campus (IC) and can be used as a training tool to support school districts in setting up and monitoring Individual Education Program (IEP) goals and objectives. The Method of Measurement and Type of Data recording in IC document captures the connection between the type of data (used in IC) and the method of measurement (used in IEPs).

This video was developed to support districts in understanding the connection between progress monitoring and driving student results. The video first covers the process of the Admissions and Release Committee (ARC) team creating a well-developed and appropriately ambitious Individual Education program (IEP). Then, the progress monitoring cycle is discussed along with support for identifying an adaption to specially designed instruction (SDI) and when an ARC meeting should occur to change the SDI. Finally, the importance of using graphs and aim lines to monitor and report progress is discussed.
