Special Education progress reports typically accompany a student’s report card, each time it is distributed during a school year.
The purpose of the Special Education progress report is to report progress toward a student’s individualized IEP goals and objectives.
But how do you write them?
Easy! In 5 simple steps!
1- State what the student is currently working on…
Jaden participates in the SPIRE reading program to support his decoding skills. Jaden recently completed the first level of the program, which includes short vowels, consonant digraphs, and diphthongs.
2-Report progress towards the goal…
IEP Goal: By the end of the IEP period, Jaden will increase his reading level from a composite DIBELS score of 200 to 340 (or higher).
As of January 2022, Jaden achieved a composite score of 315 on DIBELS.
3-Report progress towards each objective…
IEP Objective: By the end of the IEP period, Jaden will be able to accurately decode phonetically regular CVC, CCVC, and CVCC words in text and in isolation in 4 out of 5 opportunities.
Jaden can decode phonetically regular CVC words in text and in isolation in 4 out of 5 opportunities with automaticity. Jaden is able to decode phonetically regular CCVC words in text in 2 out of 5 opportunities and in lists 4 out of 5 opportunities. Jaden is able to decode phonetically regular CVCC words in text in 2 out of 5 opportunities and in lists 3 out of 5 opportunities. This data is based on texts read at Jaden’s independent reading level and word lists of 10 from the SPIRE reading program.
4-State how services were delivered…
Services were delivered consistently.
5-State whether the student is expected to meet the annual goal by the end of the IEP...
It is expected that Jaden will achieve his annual goal.
If a student has met an annual goal early, we report that they met the goal and should call an IEP Team meeting to propose new goals or to propose to dismiss the goal area.
If it is not expected that a student will meet their annual goal, an IEP Team meeting should also be called to discuss the reasons for this and to determine next steps.
Let’s put it altogether…
