Once an IEP team has outlined the measurable annual goals for a child’s IEP, members must describe how the child’s progress toward meeting those goals will be measured and shared with parents. During this webinar, Shedeh Hajghassemali from the PROGRESS Center will provide key considerations developing a monitoring plan aligned with the requirements in the Individual with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Caitlyn Majeika from the National Center on Intensive Intervention will share considerations for selecting technically adequate measures to monitor progress over time, and Kim Skow form the IRIS Center will highlight available professional learning materials to learn more about progress monitoring for reading and mathematics.
This introductory webinar is intended for educators and school leaders that are new to progress monitoring and developing a monitoring plan or as a review for veteran educators and leaders.
