Welton, Johnny W.; And Others
The Individualized Education Program Monitoring Analysis Plan (IEP MAP), an approach for evaluating the effectiveness and legal compliance of the IEP process for handicapped students, is presented. It is explained that the IEP MAP should help to improve communication between parents and regular and special education staff, improve consistency of IEP procedures throughout the district, and improve efficiency and consistency in recordkeeping. Background information is presented on the law and IEP monitoring. Instrumentation is described in terms of two types of data collection instruments: record reviews and investigation instruments using questionnaire, interview, and observation techniques. Implementation of the IEP MAP is considered in light of timeliness, staffing, coordination, and data collector training. Two final steps discussed are data analysis, and interpretation and reporting. Appended material comprises the bulk of the document and includes sample IEPs, sample IEP MAP instruments, and keypunch and computer instructions. (CL)
