State Tracking to Measure Student Progress toward IEP Goals. inForum
Burdette, Paula
Project Forum
When the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) was reauthorized in 2004, it eliminated the requirement that individualized education programs (IEPs) include short-term objectives or benchmarks, except for students with disabilities who take alternate assessments aligned to alternate achievement standards. Instead, the IDEA regulations at Section 300.320(a)(B)(3)(i) require "a description of how the child's progress toward the annual goals...will be measured." In response to this change, states have instituted policies and practices to ensure that IEP teams provide for the measurement of student progress toward annual goals. The purpose of this document is to describe state approaches to ensuring that this is taking place. Project Forum at the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) conducted this analysis as part of its cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).
