Progress Monitoring: Leadership Team Content Module

The purpose of this module is to help Leadership Teams undertake the support activities necessary to enable classroom teachers to develop and effectively use student progress monitoring data. The module provides guidance on bringing about effective collaboration in the data-based decision-making model, setting measurable goals for school reform, and ensuring school reform is driven by data. It also highlights how the use of progress monitoring can both reduce bias in the assessment process and reduce the likelihood of inappropriate special education referrals. The module concludes with a suggested sequence of study group activities for the leadership team. The module, like the Study Group Content Module, was developed by Stanley Deno, Erica Lembke, and Amy Reschly Anderson for the Research Institute on Progress Monitoring.
