Measuring Student Progress: Developing IEPs that Work!

Over the years, IEPS have evolved into documents that are burdensome to write, seen as irrelevant by the classroom teacher and, often times, yield little useful information about how a student is progressing in the general education curriculum. Through the development of well-written measurable annual goals, the strategic use of Curriculum-Based Measurement and effective behavioral data collection, IEP teams can reclaim the IEP as a tool that will guide ongoing instruction as well as provide parents with user-friendly information about their children. During this session, participants will look at the pros and cons of mastery and Curriculum-Based Measurement, as well as short-term objectives and benchmarks, and they will identify new strategies to integrate into IEP writing.

Target Audience: special educators and administrators
