Using Goals, Preferences and Skills (GPS) to point the way
To ensure the best outcomes with Unique Learning System, the GPS guides you in implementing with fidelity. The student profiles you create in GPS enable the entire instructional team to determine each student’s current level of performance, develop Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) goals and collect and evaluate data to define the next appropriate goal for a student. GPS is truly a guiding force for special educators and students alike!
Activate GPS to establish differentiation levels
Getting started is simple. The instructional team enters standards-based descriptions of a student’s performance in the student profile, helping to identify a differentiation level. Unique Learning System will automatically generate instructional materials for the student at the appropriate level. Profile descriptors may also provide the basis for the present level of performance statements.
Observe, track and monitor growth for informed instruction
Skill Tracking in the GPS Profile provides educators with a convenient summary of all the relevant resources available in Unique Learning System to help students achieve their goals—instructional strategies, lessons, assessments and more. Each tracked skill provides a place for the educational team to write the correlating IEP goal. Track student results against identified goals or standards and create a snapshot of overall growth, at the student, classroom, or program level, with customized, intuitive graphs.
Select timely assessment options with support from GPS
Tracking skills in GPS leads to an individualized recommendation on which assessments a student should take. Support includes alignment with the student’s differentiation level, optimal timing of the assessment, goal planning and more.
