How Progress Monitoring Assists Decision Making in a Response-to-Instruction Framework
Speece, Deborah
National Center on Student Progress Monitoring
Progress monitoring is a method of keeping track of children's academic development. Progress monitoring requires frequent data collection (i.e., weekly) with technically adequate measures, interpretation of the data at regular intervals, and changes to instruction based on the interpretation of child progress. This report presents two cases that illustrate how progress monitoring data could be used to make reasonable decisions about children's responsiveness. The first case shined a light on reading problems that may have been overshadowed by behavioral issues, while data in the second case indicated that the child needed more than what could be delivered in general education.
