Are you overwhelmed by the idea of data collection? Breathe a sigh of relief with this webinar. Collecting data is important throughout the year and is especially crucial for informing instruction and monitoring progress for IEPs.

In this webinar you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify different types of data, and see how it is used to inform instruction and monitor IEP goal progress
  • Use instructional data from progress monitoring to develop a quality Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP)
  • Monitor progress more efficiently during a school day
