The screening and progress monitoring meet the requirements of the Early Literacy Implementation legislation for students that qualify to participate in the Iowa Alternate Assessments.
The purpose of screening is to provide a snapshot of where the student is in comparison to the benchmarks and targets for each grade level. Screening happens three times a year, fall, winter and spring on Scales 1-4 and 6.
Progress monitoring is used to determine if interventions you have implemented are impacting student progress. Progress monitoring occurs at a minimum of once a month on selected scales.
The ELAA Manual can be located on the ELAA site under the Help section as well as on Iowa’s Alternate Assessment Google Site.
The IEP Team will use the screening data to determine which scale or scales will be monitored for progress.
The IEP Team must choose a minimum of one scale to be monitored. Monitoring must happen a minimum of once a month.
Teachers are responsible for adding and removing students from their roster.
Copies of the progress monitoring reports for fall, winter, and spring must be sent home to parents and a copy must be kept with the student’s assessment results (perm file).
