Communication of IEP Goals and Student Progress among Parents, Regular Classroom Teachers, and Administrators Using Systematic Formative Evaluation.
Sevcik, Bonita; And Others
Reactions of 12 parents, 25 teachers, and 11 administrators to various aspects of students' reading programs and progress in elementary school resource rooms throughout the year were investigated. Survey data were collected on participation, satisfaction, and clarity as part of a study that examined the effects of resource room teachers' use of a formative evaluation system on student achievement in reading. Teachers of experimental group students first wrote curriculum-based individualized education program (IEP) goals and objectives in reading. Then teachers developed curriculum-based measurement systems to match specific goals and objectives. Measurement data were used to modify instructional programs. Results indicated that participation in and clarity of the students' programs and progress were lacking, with evidence of a difference in special education/regular education communication between two districts.
