The results of the Student Profile will help guide the service provider team in this selection. The Profile provides a brief description of an individual student's current abilities and skills in relation to standards-based learning tasks. The Profile also provides suggested instructional strategies that will increase levels of skill performance in areas of standards-based learning. The descriptions and suggested instructional strategies should be key factors in the decision-making process for selecting assessments in the GPS.
After completion of a Profile, teachers can select skills to be tracked for each student in the GPS. These skills are most likely chosen from the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) and in conjunction with the results of the completed Profile. The educational team should decide on the appropriate skills to be tracked for each individual student. Tracking a skill gives an appropriate recommendation on which Benchmark Assessments the student should take in the GPS.
Student Planning Guide
The Student Planning Guide is a form provided in the GPS that the educational team could use to select the assessments for each student.
The guide is designed to be used to plan-
- When the assessments should be administered throughout the school year
- Which assessments will be administered
- Any goals and objectives that are related specifically to the student
The Student Planning Guide is located inside each student's GPS area and is available to download in a PDF format.
