This collection of resources provides information about progress monitoring. Progress monitoring is used to assess students’ academic performance, to quantify a student rate of improvement or responsiveness to instruction, and to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction. Progress monitoring can be implemented with individual students or an entire class. In progress monitoring, attention should focus on fidelity of implementation and selection of evidence-based tools, with consideration for cultural and linguistic responsiveness and recognition of student strengths.
The RTI Implementer Series Module 2: Progress Monitoring focuses on the essential components of an RTI framework with a particular focus on progress monitoring. The module covers basic information on progress monitoring and a multi-step process for selecting progress monitoring tools. Data-based decision making is embedded throughout the module with content focused on using progress monitoring data to evaluate and make decisions about instruction, to set goals, and to establish an effective progress monitoring system.
This learning modules provides an overview of progress monitoring and considerations for implementing progress monitoring in a district or school. It provides an overview of the purpose, focus, tools, and timeframe of progress monitoring and a demonstration of the progress monitoring tools chart.
This series of briefs on progress monitoring comprises four separate documents. The purpose of these progress monitoring briefs is to provide practitioners with guidance to support careful planning and thoughtful practices as part of comprehensive progress monitoring within the Response to Intervention (RTI) framework. The briefs are useful to schools just beginning the RTI process as well as those that have the RTI framework well established but need a quick check to evaluate their processes.
This series of self-paced learning modules provides an introduction to the progress monitoring component of Response to Intervention (RTI). The series also provides an overview of how to use progress monitoring data to make informed decisions about RTI implementation. While these learning modules can be used alone, they are part of a series of learning modules focused on RTI implementation. View the whole series here.
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.
RTI for English Language Learners: Appropriately Using Screening and Progress Monitoring Tools to Improve Instructional Outcomes
This brief provides a framework for using Response to Intervention (RTI) with students who are English Language Learners (ELLs) from Hispanic backgrounds. It examines the characteristics of these students, defines the RTI process, and then models how students’ linguistic, cultural, and experiential backgrounds can guide appropriate screening, progress monitoring, and goal setting that will help promote English literacy. The brief concludes with a case study that provides specific recommendations for how to apply screening and progress monitoring with ELLs. The accompanying placemat was developed to provide an overview of specific considerations for ELLs when implementing the four essential components of a RTI framework.
In this webinar, Ms. Whitney Donaldson provides an overview of progress monitoring, why it is important and how to use progress monitoring data to make data based decisions.
This learning module focuses on the steps needed to effectively utilize progress monitoring data in the decision making process. It provides information, examples, and activities to learn about the progress monitoring process.
RTI for English Language Learners: Appropriate Screening, Progress Monitoring, and Instructional Planning
In this webinar, Dr. Julie Esparza Brown, Dr. Amanda Sanford, and Erin Lolich focus on improving educational outcomes for English Language Learners (ELLs) through culturally and linguistically responsive implementation of an RTI framework in the area of elementary reading. Specifically, it discusses critical considerations to appropriately utilize screening and progress monitoring data with ELL students to improve reading outcomes by addressing the factors that influence ELL students' academic success. The webinar includes recommendations for the appropriate selection and use of screening and progress monitoring data based on students' unique backgrounds and needs and uses a case study to illustrate these recommendations with a first grade ELL student.
