Common Progress Monitoring Omissions: Planning and Practice
Progress monitoring, one of the essential components of Response to Intervention (RTI), is characterized by repeated measurement of academic performance that is conducted at least monthly. The process may be used to assess students’ academic performance over time, to quantify student rates of improvement or responsiveness to instruction, and to evaluate instructional effectiveness. For students with disabilities, progress monitoring may also be used to formulate effective individualized programs (National Center on Response to Intervention [NCRTI], 2010). Successful implementation of progress monitoring is the result of careful planning and thoughtful practice. Omitting key components of the progress monitoring process can lead to wasted time and invalid results. This issue of NASET’s RTI Roundtable focuses on five common omissions in progress monitoring practices and planning and explains how these activities are integral to the process of meaningful data-based decision making. NASET acknowledges the National Center on Response to Intervention (January 2013) for providing the information from: Progress Monitoring Brief #1 Common Progress Monitoring Omissions: Planning and Practice.
