Google Drive forms allow the special education teacher or administrator to quickly and clearly collect data on student's IEP goals. The process of building the form takes about 10 minutes and can be used by multiple people to collect data in one place that time stamps when it is collected as well as automatically saves all progress. The collected responses can be printed off and there are multiple choices such as graphs and charts to show parents and IEP participants the progress that has been made.
I have been using this method for years in order to collect objective data on student's IEP goals and it has been a valuable tool that has made my life easier as well as impress students, parents and administrators.
