Safer, Nancy; Fleischman, Steve
Educational Leadership, v62 n5 p81 Feb 2005
Teachers use student performance data to continually evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching and make more informed instructional decisions, which is a practice used in student progress monitoring. The teacher, in order to implement student progress monitoring, determines a student's current performance level, identifies achievement goals that the student needs to reach by the end of the year, and establishes the rate of progress the student must make to meet those goals.
