This Excel tool is designed to help educators collect academic progress monitoring data across multiple measures as a part of the data-based individualization (DBI) process. This tool allows educators to store data for multiple students (across multiple measures), graph student progress, and set individualized goals for a student on specific measures.
NCII has created a series of tools to help teams establish efficient and effective individual student data meetings. These include sample agendas, note taking forms, facilitator materials, and problem solving tools. It is critical that these meetings are driven by data, occur regularly, and use an efficient, consistent process that allows participants to review progress and make intervention decisions for students.
This log can be used as a daily and weekly record of the implementation of an individual student’s intensive intervention plan and can provide fidelity data used within individual problem solving meetings.
NCII developed a series of behavioral strategies to support teachers working with students with primary academic deficits and challenging behaviors. Each strategy incorporates key terminology, an overview of the purpose, and all associated materials.
