Assessment and Monitoring of Student Progress: A Video InvestigationYour written response to this discussion prompt assesses your ability to explain the role of assessment in monitoring student progress. This discussion also supports your achievement of Course Learning Outcome 3 and the MASE Program Learning Outcome 4.When working as a special educator it is essential that the frequent monitoring of student progress be maintained. As you have learned in previous courses, being able to explain a student’s level of progress, areas of strength, and/or weakness are key to successful Individualized Education Program (IEP) team meetings as well as designing lesson plans, as you will discover in this activity.Monitoring student progress does not always refer to an end of the unit test. More often, educators are accessing this information after lessons and activities to assess student learning, application, and retention of the content. This information also guides future learning. The authors of our required text, Cohen and Spenciner (2009) state, “good teaching always begins with an understanding of what the student already knows and can do,” (p. 125). Conducting frequent assessment helps teachers to adjust instruction in order to target the learning objectives and long-range (IEP) goals.This webpage (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. offers a series of short video vignettes designed to offer easy to implement informal assessment strategies.
