Learning Together - December 2015


Cindy's Open Houses will return in January.

This Fall I held Open Houses on the following topics:

  1. iStation
  2. Education Galaxy
  3. DMAC
  4. Running Records ( 2 part series on giving and analyzing errors)
  5. LLI Kits - Accessing online support materials

Please let me know what additional topics you would like to learn about or if you would like for me to repeat a topic. I'm looking for ideas for the Spring Semester.

Progress Monitoring for Tier 2 and 3 Students

Students who are identified by the RtI Committee as Tier 2 or 3 must be monitored throughout their intervention.

Tier 2 - Monitor progress every 2 weeks

Tier 3 - Monitor progress weekly

Many of you are using iStation to monitor. Since iStation has monthly monitoring, you will need to push out the iStation ISIP the other weeks that you need to monitor your students. (middle of the month for Tier 2 and each week for Tier 3)

Using the "On Demand" ISIP feature for iStation is very easy to do and can be done by any teacher that has access to that student's classroom on iStation.

Below are 3 screen shots to help you. Remember that you will want to push out the assessment and then have your students log-in to iStation. Once you push it out, it will be the first thing students see the next time they log-in.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
