Progress Monitoring for Interventions
Progress monitoring is the process of using data to understand how a student is doing once an intervention plan is underway. When done early and often, progress monitoring can ensure that you aren’t wasting time and resources on an intervention that isn’t working.
Progress can be entered in two ways: manually, when you make updates to a student's intervention plan, or automatically, for certain types of assessments that are pulled into Student Success. The monitoring method and frequency are determined by the educator who initially created the student's intervention plan, and cannot be changed once an intervention is in place.
Once a student has a minimum of 6 data points for a particular assessment, you will see a trend line. Comparing the trend line against the aim line, which connects the baseline and target scores, allows you to begin to understand the general effectiveness of past and present interventions with the student.
Because we know that progress is not always contained to a single intervention, this graph will show any past or present interventions alongside the progress monitoring data points. This will give you a fuller picture of the student's progress and a more complete understanding of where they are in their learning process.
