Monitoring Student Progress
In order to assess student's response to intervention, progress should be monitored frequently. Progress monitoring assessments should be administered no less than once per month, and some publishing companies have combined these tools with screening or benchmark measures.
When deciding which measure to employ for monitoring progress, looks for tests that offer results that are easy to graph, and provide an aimline or statistically validated trajectory which represents the rate of student progress. Aimlines determine if your students are within reach of benchmark expectations or if changes need to be made to the nature or intensity of their instructional support.
