Data-Based IEP Development: An Approach to Substantive Compliance.
Deno, Stanley L.; Mirkin, Phyllis K.
The authors describe the development and use of a structured, data base approach to developing individual education programs for special education students. The components of the "Data-Based Program Modification" (DBPM) approach are described to include five decision areas: problem selection; program selection (least restrictive yet most effective); program operationalization (including identification of goals and frequent measurement of goal progress); program improvement; and program certification. Five areas of data gathering in the DBPM are also identified: initial needs assessment, program planning, implementation evaluation, progress evaluation, and outcome evaluation. (CL)
