Educators monitor student performance towards goals and objectives, or create groupings for teaching and re-teaching through a variety of formative assessments. Students become more actively engaged with interactive learning, personalized experiences, and the opportunity to chart growth.
The teacher should be using short assessments to test the student frequently and evaluate the student's progress. The teacher can monitor individuals or the entire class. When progress monitoring the teacher should focus on fidelity when selecting the evidence based tools and the implementation process.
It is important to use the right assessment tools in the classroom to focus on the needs of the students. The tools should also give instant data to the teacher in order to inform the instruction of individuals and the entire class.
Progress monitoring is a scientifically based practice used to assess your child's academic progress and evaluate the effectiveness of instruction. Progress monitoring tells the teacher what your child has learned and what still needs to be taught.
Progress monitoring can be implemented with individual students or an entire class. In progress monitoring, the teacher uses short tests to evaluate your child's progress in specific areas. The teacher may tests your child often - every week or two.- See more at: http://www.wrightslaw.com/info/progress.index.htm#sthash.F53zrHoR.dpuf
