TRAC Monitoring System. Reference Guide.
Montgomery County Intermediate Unit 23, Blue Bell, PA.
The kit is a multilevel assessment and reporting instrument for continuously evaluating the progress of multiply handicapped and retarded children receiving instruction in basic living skills. The TRAC System is designed to pretest a child to prescribe individual instruction and to then monitor the child's progress in his or her program. The system is structured to monitor student progress at three specific levels: an area of adaptive behavior, skills within that area, and subskills within that skill. The adaptive behaviors covered include eating, dressing, communication, social behavior, personal hygiene, motor performance, basic skills, concept formation, and toileting. The kit includes recording sheets to tabulate student performance in each of the three specific levels. A reference guide is also provided, covering how to use the TRAC System, its limitations and possible misuses, its use with other instruments and/or specific curricula, and its technical development.
