Progress Monitoring Tools for Reading Interventions

PROGRESS MONITORING Unpacked and Explained

Progress monitoring is the scientifically based practice of assessing students' academic performance on a regular basis for three key purposes:
  1. To determine whether students are profiting appropriately from the instructional program, including the curriculum
  2. To build more effective programs for the children who do not benefit
  3. To estimate rates of student improvement
Progress monitoring is a set of weekly or monthly assessment procedures for determining the extent to which students are benefiting from classroom instruction and for monitoring the effectiveness of corrective or compensatory curriculum. Progress monitoring should be based on grade level norms and be based on researched best practice. Progress monitoring is used to assess a student's academic progress or lack of progress and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and instructional support. Progress monitoring tells the teacher what your child has learned and what still needs to be taught. The school interventionist and or special education teachers should be collecting weekly/monthly data and creating graphs that show the student's progress and growth.

Progress monitoring for IEPs or SSTs: Special education teacher or intervention teacher uses short formative or summative tests to evaluate a child's academic progress. The most effective progress monitoring is done every week or two with all data graphed and shared with all the stakeholders. 

        RtI Programs, Section 504, and Special Education Programs need to use valid progress monitoring tools that measure, track and identify a student's strengths and weaknesses. Schools that do not use a suite of comprehensive progress monitoring tools will leave the students and the teachers at a disadvantage. School systems today may use some form of computer-based monitoring programs like the NWEA MAP assessments and or classroom-based assessment tools like the DRA for progress monitoring. My first four years of teaching special needs students taught me the power of using a comprehensive progress monitoring program 1:1 with students multiple times every quarter. Sitting with a student and assessing them vs. sitting them in front of a computer and having them take an assessment is gold vs. bronze in my opinion. 
     Helping teachers and students increase academic skills starts with valid, comprehensive, effective tools that identify strengths and weaknesses. Diagnosing academic strengths, weaknesses and potential problems using RtI diagnostic screens and assessments is one of the first steps. The Brigance Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills and The Woodcock-Johnson® III Tests of Achievement are the two I was trained to use. Both are 1:1, giving the teacher great insight into a students academic attitude/aptitude, thinking and reasoning skills, confidence, perseverance, self-regulation, and overall communication skills. You miss most of that when you rely on computer-based monitoring.
