Student Progress Monitoring: What This Means for Your Child

This brief, developed for the National Center on Student Progress Monitoring by Kathleen McLane, provides an overview of student progress monitoring. It may be of particular use for parents in helping them gather key information from their child’s school.

The National Center on Student Progress Monitoring (NCSPM) was funded by the Office of Special Education Programs from 2003-2008, and content has not been updated since that time. Although materials were vetted under the NCSPM, professionals differ in how they report and explain certain content and procedures.  The materials were authored by various experts in the field and thus reflect this variation.  These materials are in the public domain, so you may use and edit them as needed to suit your purposes.
