Keep efficient, weekly data to track of your student's progress towards all of their IEP goals. This packet contains all of my formats for all goal areas, reading, writing, math and behavior.
As a special education teacher I am forever striving to find the best ways to keep ongoing data for my students. Of the many methods I have tried, this one has been the most efficient for my staff and I. By keeping this basic data weekly, it is easy to see where my students are at on their goals, which objective they should working on, and how to anticipate and prepare for upcoming IEPS.
What you will find:
- A Reading, Writing, Math, and Behavior data sheet packet that corresponds with student's annual IEP review date. Short-term objective timelines are listed on data sheets to correspond with the child's IEP review date. There is a packet for each month of the school year, August - June (about 50 pages for each month, about 550 pages total, over 1,000 when Word Documents of same content included)
- Each month is split up into quarters, with clear indicators as to when the student should have met their short-term objective and when to move on to the next objective (or to their annual goal).
- Calendar dates go from the beginning of September through mid-June.
I print out a form for each student and keep the form in his or her individual work folders. (They have one folder per subject). When they are to move on to the next short-term objective, I swap out the pages, file the data, and write the current progress report. It is very clear cut and straightforward. The on-going commentary I write on my student’s data sheets is very useful to use during conferences and allow me to speak more in-depth about their progress. The forms also allow for any one walking in or through your room to see that your instruction is always aligned (in some way or form) to your student’s IEP goals.
Each goal area (reading, writing, math, behavior) has specific check points, general enough to encompass all students, but specific enough to paint a clear picture. The check points make it easy to see their progress at a glance. The "activity" portion allows you to show that the activities you are doing align with their IEP goal(s). The comment section allows for elaborating on specific skills they are working on, and detail what areas they need further instruction in. The prompt level shows where they are at in moving towards independence. This is a crucial element as the student may be making progress on their goal, but still require prompting from an adult to complete the task at hand.
My students are in 3rd through 6th grade and working on academic skills ranging from a pre-acadmeic level to a third grade level. With one unique exception, I use this "generic" form for all students, regardless of level.
This is specific to the 2016-2017 school year, with the calendar starting at the beginning of September and going through the middle of June.
