MS064: Simple Statistical Tools for Progress Monitoring
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
10:00 AM—11:50 AM
The standard approach to monitoring a student’s progress, visual analysis, may be inaccurate when data are highly variable and students are failing to make progress. Therefore, we propose using the Tau-U to estimate the student’s progress, because it is robust against variability and informs of students failing to make progress. Because special education decisions are influenced by progress monitoring, we hope the inclusion of the Tau-U will increase the accuracy of these decisions.
