What happens?

  • Instructional and related service personnel collect and maintain records to chart the student’s progress and needs.
  • These records can be anecdotal reports, portfolios, charts, criterion-referenced tests, teacher-made tests, interviews, student work samples, etc.


Who is involved?

  • Classroom teachers
  • Related service personnel (i.e. paraeducators, speech pathologists, counselors, etc.)
  • Appraisal personnel
  • Student
  • Parents/family


What is the timeline?

  • Data collection should begin as soon as the IEP is developed and continue until the next scheduled IEP review.
  • Usually progress is reported at the same time that typical students receive report cards, but this can change based on an ARD/IEP committee decision.
