Progress Monitoring & Assessment of CLD/EL/SEL Learners Dr. Catherine Collier www.crosscultured.com
First Things First There is no such thing as a nonbiased test. Assessment is more than testing. Prevention is better than failure. Measure progress, not ‘achievement’
RTI Progress Monitoring: When RTI is a function of regular education that emphasizes preventing learning difficulties before they start and eliminating the need for a student to fail before intervention is available. At-risk students are assessed frequently on specific skills throughout the year to determine if the intervention being used is effective and if the student is responding as intended.
Progress Monitoring: Why Based on progress monitoring and whether the student is achieving at an appropriate rate of progress in relation to his goals, the following factors may be changed or adjusted: the research based materials the frequency of the intervention the duration of the intervention group size the designated instructor
Progress Monitoring: What Identify Problem Set Objective Identify Baseline Benchmark Steps Select Strategies Implement Plan Monitor Each Step Achieved Objective? Remaining Problems?
RTI Progress Monitoring: How Is there a discrepancy between current & excepted performance? Did it work? What do we do next? Why & to what extent is there a problem? By how much should the student grow? By how much should the student grow? How & when will the intervention strategy be implemented? What will be done to resolve the problem?

Models of Progress Monitoring RTI Standard Protocol RTI Coninuous Response to Instruction and Intervention Problem Solving with Progress Monitoring Clockwise = right brain Counterclockwise = left brain
Tiered Progress Monitoring Tier 1 Progress Monitoring: Students are assessed quarterly to ensure that they continue to perform at benchmark levels. Tier 2 Progress Monitoring: Students are assessed regularly determine whether or not the interventions are effective within 8-10 week cycles. Tier 3 Progress Monitoring: Students require intensive instruction and are assessed weekly within 2-4 week cycles of focused intervention. Tier 4 Progress Monitoring: The cycle of intervention, progress monitoring, and adjustment of the intervention continues within IEP.
Example of Tiered Progress Monitoring
PROBLEM SOLVING CHART Yes No Does the damn thing work? Yes Don’t mess with it! Did you mess with it? You Idiot! No Yes No Will you catch hell? Hide it! Does anyone else know? No Yes Ignore it You poor slob! Can you blame somebody else? No Yes NO PROBLEM
