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.
This brief explains factors that you must consider before implementing student progress monitoring in your school. Three main issues are discussed, including: goal oriented issues, staff oriented issues, and administrative and logistical issues.
This presentation discusses issues related to successfully implementing progress monitoring at the school or district level. It also addresses how to support the implementation of CBM in classes that have students with disabilities and/or English Language Learners (ELLs).

MTSS, RTI, Special Education…OH My! Gaining an understanding of MTSS and RTI from Drs. Lynn Fuchs and Joe Jenkins
Response to Intervention (RTI) and Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) are frameworks for integrating instruction, evidence-based interventions, and assessments to meet the academic and behavior needs of all students. The essential components of MTSS are as follows: screening, progress monitoring, a multilevel prevention system, and data-based decision making (National Center on Response to Intervention, 2010).

Watch and listen as Dr. Daryl Mellard addresses this question.
