    I teach pre-k and have to keep data of IEP goals on 20 spec. ed. kids. Does anyone have any ideas as far as devising a chart for all the students w/ their goals that is sweet and simple???

    I can find you something. Right now it is at school and I'm at home. There is a task analysis sheet that a teacher uses that I am going to get from her for me to use this year. It seems pretty simple. I think there are a couple more options lingering around there, too. When do you need it? I won't see that teacher until Aug 8th when we go back to school. I can scan the sheets and email them to you or if you want to email me a mailing address for your school, I can put it in the mail right after I get a copy from that teacher. Either way, let me know.

    Sounds Great!

    You can just e-mail them to me at suriley@earthlink.net
    Teachers report August 12th with students starting the following week. Thank you sooooo much. I'm just looking for a very simple, easy to read format that won't be cumbersome that I can record each students IEP Goals and Objectives (20 students!) with data collection on where they are with each goal. Each student has approx. 8 goals with 16 objectives!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Suriley:)

    That is a LOT of goals and objectives. The task analysis sheet will make it much easier. You can put them on a clipboard and flip at a glance. Tie a pin on a string to the clipboard and THERE YA GO! With you starting school after me that will give me time to get the email to you. If I find anything like it online, I'll let you know!

    Why don't you post the goals and benchmarks sheets on this web-site, or just an example of one page, we can see how to set it up......I'd like to see this method myself.. Your Friend in Combat, Gary Morris

    Sure, if I can figure out how to do that. :) I know how to surf the web... haven't mastered putting stuff on it yet. :)

    OH OH OH!!! I just thought of something!! We use the BRIGANCE for some of out IEP testing and goal writing. There is a classroom record book that goes with that! I'll have to check that out and see if that would be something you could use. Hmm... copyright problems though? We'll figure out something. I'll be looking!

    I would be glad to email it to any of you. I guess I need to start making a list of who all wants it. I'd hate to forget someone.

    I know each child has a sheet (or 2 depending on how many objectives in the IEP). It lists the objectives down the page. Out to the side you mark on a daily basis if the activity was performed by putting the percentage (ex. 50%) or how many out of how many (3/6) in the box depending on what achievement level was set for each objective. It makes it easy to go back at each report card time and tally up the final achievement score.

    That helps if you have a parent question the progress of the child.

    I've been thinking. I think the words I am looking for instead of task analysis is data collection. Anyway. I'll let you know.

    Gotcha on there Lisa. I am still waiting to meet up with the teacher that has the sheet. I emailed her and asked her to leave me a copy in my box, but she hasn't been up to school yet. So, I'm still waiting. If I could remember more of what it looked like I could make one on the computer, but I didn't get THAT good of a look at it. :(

    I would love to be on your list as well! I was actually going to start a thread to get suggestions on keeping track of goals, but then I found this! The idea of the data sheet sounds kinda simple- am I missing something? Is it something you could make on your own on EXCEL or something?

    Yeah, it is simple. I am sure it can be done spread sheet style. You know, now that I've thought about it. You could modify a class roll sheet. Instead of writing the names down the left side of the paper... write the goals/objectives and out by it is each day listed. GOOD GRIEF! Why didn't I figure that out earlier?! Having a DUH!! moment. :rolleyes: So, If you want to you could use that modification or I can still make the sheet and send it out. OR if you can find a cheap roll book/grade book and modify it. I may do that so I can keep up with it. Or if you do individual sheets later on you could put them in their file. What to do... What to do...

    Do y'all still want the sheet or want to do the SIMPLE thing and get a roll/grade book and make your own? Just let me know. :) I'll figure out something. :)

    I have made a sheet for goal/data collection on Excel, but, it took me awhile - I was just hoping that there was a prepared form out there somewhere. How would you use a grade book?

    Each child would have a page layout. Right their name at the top. Where you normally list student's names down the left side, briefly write the goals/objectives. Then in the daily boxes that go across the page you right in a score if the objective was worked on. Like if you had... So-in-So will do ______ with 75% accuracy. Well, after they do _____ figure up if they got 75% right. Write down in that day's box what % he/she got right. OR if you wrote they will get 4 out of 5 right then you would jot down what out of 5 they got write. Then at the end of the grading period you could go back and look at their progress.

    If you have a lot of students it may take 2 books. You can get a cheap one at a teacher store or just copy a page layout from the grade book that hasn't been written on and attach them in the back of the book.

    Does that make sense or did it sound like I was rambling?

    What a great idea!! I will have 20 ESE pre-k students and I have an empty plan book that I can use. That will be convient because it is wire bound and has lots of pages. Thanks again for a great idea.

    You've sold me on that idea Lori :) We are issued plan books through the county each year. I've been throwing out those pages since they're not really convient for planning Montessori style. Duh! Funny how the most obvious idea always escapes us!

    Anyone know of a good version of a grade book that would work nicely for this? (the name, what it looks like? where to get it?) The grade books our county gives out has such small boxes to write information, that it would not be good for this purpose, I don't think. I don't even want to use it for my grades, but they don't have the computer grading program that I used at my last year's school.

    well then... that settles it. I'll email everyone that hasn't posted so far since the grade book idea and tell them that would be simpler. :) That will save us a lot of time and paper. :)

    KLaMonda,

    Go to a teacher store, flip through the pages til you find a book with big enough boxes. I figure I'll just write small. I'll get a good FINE tip pen and attach it to the book so I won't lose it. :)

    Re: IEP collective form

    I would like to have a copy of that form too. My new job is regular classroom (regular ed) but they grouped them by ability and I have 7 IEP's.

    Thanks

    Keitha,

    A grade book can be used for the same thing. In previous posts on here, I mentioned how to modify it. I will be getting the form from another teacher Thursday, but a grade book would work fine if you can write small enough to put a percentage or a fraction.

    Lori :)

    OK! The time has come! I emailed the task analysis sheet to all who I had an email for and a sample sheet to go with it. If you didn't get the email, let me know and I'll send it to you. I will try to figure out to post it on a website so it will be easy for anyone to get, but that will be later this weekend. It will work for schools on 6 weeks schedules. I am going to make a 9 week one this weekend because we are on 9 weeks here. I'll get that out later to whoever wants it.

    I was just wondering, does everyone document progress for each goal/objective daily? Weekly? As it happens?

    Last year, I decided I would document progress 10 times a grading period, which would be about 1x a week- it gave me a nice easy percentage to work with. I took the percentages from each grading period, averaged all 4 grading periods together, to come up with my grand total, which told me whether the goal was met for the year. (So if a student mastered the goal with 60% accuracy the first sem, 50 the second, 70 the third, and 80 the fourth, I'd average them together, which is 65%. If they were supposed to meet their goal with 60% accuracy, then they would have achieved the goal)
    However, like all teachers, I was looking to improve, and thought that maybe that wasn't accurate enough. If a student's goal is to wipe his nose when it's running, and he did it 3 times that week, but I only documented it once, then I'm not giving him enough credit for it.
    What do you guys think? Should I be checking daily for each goal?
    Thanks for any info, I hope that wasn't confusing!
    Kristin

    I document once a week, I'd think you'd stress yourself out with daily records. I use codes E=skill is emerging S=doing it sometimes or paritally C=consistantly preforming the skill M=demonstrating mastery. When I sit down to record information, I consider progress the whole week. I try not towrite goals with expectations of how many times a week I expect them to do something. I opt for goals with 75% accuracy or 75% of the time--The student will count 1-5 with one to one correspondance 75% of the time, when given pictures or objects. Hope this made sense.

    I prefer goals that say __ out of __ trials (like 4 out of 5, which is 80%). Then I don't need percentages, If you are documenting weekly, and it is 5 trials then they must preform the task once a school day, that's more than realistic, most of your goals are things the kids are doing more than once a day anyway. Does that make sense?
