Frequent formative assessment of basic skills is one of the most powerful tools in the teacher’s toolbox, especially for those students who have significant achievement discrepancies. The most scientifically sound way of doing this is with Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM). Dr. Shinn will demonstrate how to write IEP goals by determining the Present Level of Performance (PLOP) and writing goals and a Criterion for Acceptable Performance (CAP) using a normative approach. Goal setting with students who are discrepant, but not (yet) special education eligible also will be discussed.
