Progress Monitoring Assessment Design

This article explains the three possible designs for developing progress monitoring assessments and collecting those results in Forefront. 

With Forefront’s assessment builder tool, teachers and leaders can create custom assessments or copy and modify existing assessments to use them as progress monitoring probes. Please note that the assessment builder tool is a feature that is only available in Basic and Premium plans.

Design 1: A Broad Rubric

This is an assessment that is cloned/copied and used repeatedly to measure progress. An example:

  • 3 points: student achieved goal
  • 2 points: student is approaching goal
  • 1 point: student is still beginning to approach goal
  • 0 points: no progress is evident

Design 2: Specific, Repeated Probes

In this scenario, a set of tasks are copied/cloned and repeated. For example, these might be a set of 10 tasks, where 10 out of ten is the goal.

Design 3: A Series of Specific Probes

In this third scenario, each probe is aligned with the goal, but each assessment is unique.
