    In preparation for the webinar, please read the handout
      “David’s Present Levels of Academic Achievement.”

        Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network
PaTTAN’s Mission

     The mission of the Pennsylvania
    Training and Technical Assistance
  Network (PaTTAN) is to support the
  efforts and initiatives of the Bureau of
    Special Education, and to build the
  capacity of local educational agencies
  to serve students who receive special
            education services.
PDE’s Commitment to Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)

      Our goal for each child is to ensure
    Individualized Education Program (IEP)
         teams begin with the general
       education setting with the use of
       Supplementary Aids and Services
             before considering a
        more restrictive environment.
Learner Objectives

•Utilize student data to determine present academic
•Create IEP goals relative to the Pennsylvania
academic standards.
•Align goals to specially designed instruction that
addresses a student’s needs across settings.
•Determine progress monitoring tools and
schedules to evaluate and improve instruction.

POLL : What are your beliefs?

  When students with disabilities are provided
  with appropriate instruction and supports,
  they can learn grade-level academic
  knowledge & skills and communicate in ways
  that are commensurate with their same age
  peers without disabilities.

                   1) “I agree”
                   2) “I disagree”
   Accessing the General Education                         6

• What is meant by the general education
   • The full range of courses, activities, lessons,
     and materials routinely used by the general
     population of a school

• What is meant by access?
  • Active engagement in learning the content
    and skills of the curriculum that is being
    taught to general education students.
What is a Standards-Aligned IEP?

An IEP that connects a student’s learning to
   grade level Pennsylvania standards and
 evaluates their progress through the lens of
the general education curriculum, standards,
     assessment anchors and curriculum

                     Aligned IEP

   SAS: Standards and Anchors
Standards and Alternate Standards
• Benchmark measures that define what students
  should know and be able to do.

Assessment Anchors (PSSA, PASA, Keystone)
• Clear examples of the skills/knowledge that should
  be learned and will be assessed on state tests at
  specific grade levels.

             PA Academic Standard 1.1.B
    Reading Independently- Word Recognition Skills
  Read an excerpt from the grade level standards below.
  Determine which grade matches each description.
Which is a Grade 3, 5, 8 or 11 standard?
 A. Root words, prefixes, suffixes, syllabication, picture
    and context clues
 B. Syllabication, root words, prefixes, suffixes,
    dictionary or context clues
 C. Root words, context clues, dictionaries, glossaries
 D. Root words, context clues, word origins and
    reference sources to recognize and understand new
Monitoring of Progress in A Standards        12

          Aligned System

  All information is obtained and all
  judgments are made with the
  standards and anchors as both the
  starting and ending point

         Present Levels of Academic
 It is critical that assessment, present levels,
 goals and progress monitoring include
 both the instructional and grade levels

     – Instructional level alone does not
       meet the criteria of the general
       education curriculum
     – Grade level alone does not meet the
       criteria of an IEP based on identified skill
   “Jessie’s classroom performance is
What is meant by classroom performance?
  • Maintains 3-ring binder of study guides for each core
    academic class
What is meant by inconsistent?
  • Ranges from 1 – 8 missing guides per week
Put it all together for a clearer statement:
  “Jessie maintains study guides for her
  academic classes, and averages 4 missing
  guides per week.”                                         14

 Begin from baseline of skill
 Describe skill attainment level
 Need to be prioritized: 3-5 goals
 Are NOT the curriculum or program
 State measurable, countable data
 Lead to visual countable progress monitoring

                Writing Conventions
           Standards Aligned Goal Sample

Category 1.5 Quality of Writing (conventions)
• Standard 1.5.5.F: Use grade appropriate conventions of language
  when writing and editing.
  • Spell common, frequently used words correctly.
  • Use capital letters correctly.
  • Punctuate correctly.
  • Use correct grammar and sentence formation.

Goal: Given a writing prompt, David will write a three-
 paragraph essay and score a minimum of 41 on the
 Correct Word Sequence Grade 5 assessment, for three
 out of four prompts.
            Interpret Math Language
         Standards Aligned Goal Sample
Category 2.5 Mathematical Problem Solving and Communication
Standard 2.5.5.B: Use appropriate mathematical terms, vocabulary,
  language, symbols, and graphs to explain clearly and logically solutions
  to problems.

Goal: David will use correct mathematical terms,
 vocabulary, language, and graphs to explain (state
 and/or write) clearly and logically solutions to problems
 as evidenced by a minimum score of 4 out of 5 on the
 Math Language Rubric used in conjunction with
 assessments given every two weeks.

Steps for writing a standards-aligned IEP goal:

                     SDI for David
• Digital/audio versions of social studies and science text books.
• Access to online (auditory) glossary in content area texts
• Instruction in use of outlining/concept mapping software
• Teacher-made graphic organizers and templates for organizing
  information prior to each unit
• Checklists and guides for note-taking
• Access to word processor in class for writing assignments
  greater than one paragraph in length
• Use of manipulatives to solve equalities
• Graphic representations of word problem types/use of
• Use of rubrics and word banks to guide written/oral
  responses to problems
            SDI and the
Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

UDL removes barriers to learning by
 anticipating the needs of ALL students.

    Multiple means of representation
      Multiple means of expression
Multiple means of action and engagement
