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 standards-based approach, which is different from the goal setting approach used with elementary students.

The State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) provides a framework for continuous improvement in educational outcomes for students with disabilities. The SPP/APR is built upon federally mandated indicators of compliance and performance. Each indicator includes baseline data, annual measurable and rigorous targets, and improvement activities. It is developed with significant input from the Pennsylvania Special Education Advisory Panel and other stakeholders. An additional new requirement of the SPP/APR is the State Systemic Improvement Plan (Indicator 17) built around a particular focus area. Pennsylvania worked in collaboration with stakeholders and the SEAP and identified improving school completion rates for students with disabilities as its focus area. This session will help participants become familiar with, and be able to discuss, research-based strategies to help students with disabilities stay in school and graduate with a high school diploma.
