Transcript of Data Collection, Progress Monitoring, for Special Education

Thank you for
to share in this
Community! Data collection What are ways
we collect data? Are the goals written as to where
they can be measured?

Let's take a look at some examples. Data collection is a regular activity in the special education classroom. It requires assessing the student's success on individual items on his or her goals on a regular basis, usually at least once a week. Must be SYSTEMATIC - A plan should identify
when data collection should occur

Must be DEFENSIBLE - Data provides teachers
necessary information to make defensible
decisions about instruction. Grades
IEP Monitoring
Test Scores
Oral Reading Fluency
Writing Samples
Behavior Charts Progress Monitoring for IEP Goals Data Collection, Progress Reporting, for Special Ed Why Data Collection? Example
Goal: In 36 Instructional weeks, Tweety will use a hundreds chart to answer 10 double digit addition problems. Success will be measured with 70% accuracy on 2 trials on daily work. Is this goal measurable?

Could you collect data on this goal? PLAAFP: Tweety currently is not able to list or use a visual organizer to name any important dates in World History.

Goal: By the end of the 2012-2013 school year, using a graphic organizer, such as a timeline, Tweety will list the following important dates on a timeline and use a word bank to fill in the time line with details: 1492, 1776, 1863, 1914, 1918, 1939, 1941, and 1980. Success will be measured using daily work with Tweety knowing 6 out of 8 dates on 2 trials.

1st Six Weeks Progress Report: Tweety currently is able to determine 3 dates in the proper place on the timeline 1492, 1776 & 1863. He is able to use the word bank to fill in the correct details for these dates with 100% accuracy on 3 trials. Example In order to write our PLAAFPs we must have measurable data.

Once we write our IEPs we should know how we are going to measure our goals.

When documenting our Six Weeks Progress Reports we must have measurable data, which relates directly to the goal. How would parents feel if we share in an IEP meeting how we intend to collect data on the goals? Data collection is a very important aspect of instruction and assessment.

It plays a vital role in our IEP
writing and progress monitoring. Who has a right to ask to see your student's data sheets? What is the most difficult part of creating and using data collection strategies? A few things we will discuss in the training: Collaborate together regarding data collection and how it impacts our Progress Reports, PLAAFPs, & Goals.
Look at samples of data sheets
Share Google data sheets
Excel data sheets
Behavior data
Create a data sheet to meet your student's needs
If you have something you use for data collection you would like to share, please bring it with you. Thorough data collection is an essential way of showing whether a student is or is not making progress on goals. Baseline Data An initial marker against how to compare the outcome performance.

It will show the indication of the trend.

Where is the student beginning? NOW WHAT? Example of Progress Report Note:

1st Six Week Reporting Period:Tweety is able to answer 40% of 10 problems in 2 trials and 50% in 1 trial this six weeks. YES! What would a progress report look like for this goal? Thank you and I look forward to our collaborative learning regarding data collection & progress monitoring!
