Progress Monitoring
Can run reports different ways - depending on login
Bi monthly progress monitoring for Tier II

Intervention Name
End Date
Starting Test
5 options for goals - Moderately Ambitious 50 SGP or 66 GSP (just above average growth)
Or define a custom goal
Progress monitoring report shows progress compared to the trend line
What statistical procedure is creating the trendline?
Does this give enough skill specific information?
SEM is 50 scale score points
You can void a test - only district administrator
Difference in probe model is no diagnostic piece

Interesting looking comparability report

Includes past, present and future growth profile
Compared to where to be in order to be proficient in EOG
Gives progression lines at different growth rates

District Dashboard Navigator

Schools who are district average, who is below, who is growing, etc.

Performance Report
If students follow the growth model, this is what EOG will look like in May
