Student Progress Monitoring: What This Means for Your Child

2017-10-30T16:45:56-05:00

Progress monitoring can give you and your child’s teacher information that can help your child learn more and learn faster, and help you make better decisions about the type of instruction that will work best with your child. Our children’s progress is being monitored constantly at school, through the steady stream of homework assignments, quizzes, tests, projects, and standardized tests. On first hearing the term “student progress monitoring,” our initial reaction may be “they’re doing this already!” or “more tests?” But do you really know how much your child is learning or progressing? Standardized tests compare your child’s performance with other [...]

In fact, Kevin’s written expression skills were severely delayed [...]

Because of this, teachers may not assign a grade based on effort, and schools cannot pass a student who has not mastered the curriculum. Since goals can be either academic or functional in nature, they either [...]
