The Assessment is designed to assist teachers to do two things:
Determine students’ skill levels in a number of functional academic areas.
Assemble functional academic programs to address student deficits.
The results of the Assessment provide teachers with a road map to the specific IEP goals to address, and provide clear indicators of each student’s Present Levels of Performance. The Assessment does not provide a standardized score. Instead, each skill domain is evaluated individually to determine the level at which the student is performing and then to identify the next skills in the sequence to teach. After the Assessment is completed, teachers will use the flow charts (provided with each content area) to identify the corresponding Curriculum lesson(s) to teach.
