Monitoring student progress can help teachers make informed decisions about where to go with classroom instruction. Being able to see growth over time in students’ data gives teachers an idea of what’s working and what to try next.

Consider these three helpful tips to ensure you are getting the most out of progress monitoring your students.

1. Use an all-in-one assessment tool.

With computer-adaptive tools, each student will be assessed in the area of content they need to be working on. Having an assessment tool that adapts to the learner keeps students’ frustration levels low. When students answer an item incorrectly, a computer-adaptive assessment will automatically present questions better suited for their current level. Computer programs give teachers the ability to assess an entire class at once so they can spend more time going over results and planning instructional lessons instead of grading.

2. Monitor progress often.

Tracking student progress using short assessments takes away the test anxiety associated with long assessment days. Assessing students on one skill at a time provides teachers with immediate results for that skill, allowing them to focus intervention practices on that particular skill for a small group of students.

3. Talk with students daily.

Spend time talking with individual students each day to get to know your learners. Knowing a student better can help teachers predict and confirm assessment results. Going over results with students builds ownership and confidence for the learner. Involving students in the tracking process can be the key to reaching typically hard-to-motivate students. Consider having students conference with each other in small groups. They can share what they learned and talk through skills they struggle with.
