Progress Monitoring is a key component of Classworks that provides ongoing snapshots of student progress on specific areas of concern. The importance of Progress Monitoring increases when implemented in an RtI or tiered intervention model. Progress Monitoring continually informs and measures the overall effectiveness of the Individualized Learning Classworks intervention.
Classworks Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) Probes
- Can be used for Tier 3 students
- Can serve as documentation for referral for special education testing
- Can provide continual monitoring intervention effectiveness
Students who need to be tested for specific learning disabilities (SLD) have severe trouble learning or demonstrating skills in one or more academic areas.
Classworks progress monitoring skill categories align with one or more of these academic areas.
This correlation provides important documentation that supports the Special Education Referral process.
How do I use this data?
In our Progress Monitoring Report (see sample here), it breaks down how well the student is doing in each Skill Category.
In the example below, you can see that this student is struggling in a few areas. Looking at their cumulative totals, they are struggling in the Classworks Skill Categories "Writing Process" and “Grammar/Usage/Mechanics.” Using our table above, this indicates that the SLD Area of Concern is “Written Expression.”
What about Reading Fluency and Oral Fluency?
Student progress with the two remaining SLD Areas of Concern, Reading Fluency and Oral Fluency, can be measured through instructional activities connected to grade-level reading passages available in our Classroom Reading.
