Now at the end of every nine weeks when we are required to provide parents with Progress Reports all I need to do is average the data and enter it onto the appropriate due process form. Also, at IEP meetings I can quickly show parents and other team members graphs of progress.
Record keeping has always been a tedious process. Since I started to use this system, I actually don't mind taking or recording data. The end of the first nine weeks is here and I am quickly averaging up data and moving right along with my progress reports. Perhaps after many years of being a professional educator, I have finally found a way to work smarter not harder. Why not give it a try and see what you think?
