Summer seems to be the time for linkies! I think our creative juices flow a little more (when we can get the motivation). I'm loving all the different fun and creative ideas, all in one place! Today I'm joining up with Jenn from Crazy Speech World for her "Show Me the Data!" Linky.
Data collection...a necessary evil in our jobs. I try new methods each year and still haven't found that perfect one. I started working on some forms the other day and came up with one for student goal information and data collection. Here's what it looks like:
There are spaces to add the student's name, DOB, teacher, frequency of service, IEP due date, LTG, objectives, and data. There's another page you can print on the back with more boxes for data collection. There's a space to keep notes or write anecdotal information on the top. I think I might print page 2 back to back and continue my data collection on these, then add a new page 1 when IEPs are reviewed.
How do I plan on using them? Check out this example:
In an ideal world, you'd get data for each objective during each session, but in the school's that's rarely going to happen! I haven't decided if I want to keep a column for each session or just fill in the blank boxes as I go. I may end up filling in the blank boxes so I can easily see which objectives need data.
So that's what I'm going to try this year for data collection. What do you think? If you'd like to download a copy of these sheets, you can do so HERE.
Thank you Jenn for hosting this linky! Don't forget to head over to Crazy Speech World to find out more data collection tips and tricks!
