What's Our Goal: Making Data Fun

Data collection can be frustrating when trying to progress monitor social or emotional skills.  Your standard go to’s for academics may not work and often there is no product to buy that matches a students need.  We know progress monitoring and data collection is required for each of our IEP goals but often we are not trained or given enough tools to make this data collection useful.   Coming from a lens that behavior is an output of a skill deficit, we will explore how we can set up a system to be able to evaluate progress in social and emotional skills for individuals.  Progress monitoring takes going from a need, making a goal, then matching a tool to find out if progress is being made. When we start thinking about data for social and emotional skills in a different way, explore data collection tools and check to make sure we are learning what we need, progress monitoring goes from being a requirement to informing our practice.
