Special Education Preschool Progress Report
We believe children of all abilities and talents need guidance and positive encouragement from school and home alike. This Progress Report does not compare your child with any other student; but rather; shows the progress your child has made in meeting standards set by the District/State.
Students receive two progress reports per year, one in the fall of the new school year and the second at the end of the school year. The marking key explains the level of independence of each score. Teachers and parents can determine a student’s level of independence using the performance descriptors found on the progress report:
Level 5- (Independent)
Self-Directing, student is not dependent on another to complete the task. Student consistently self-initiates across people and settings in which tasks should be preformed. If a reference tool is needed, the student knows how to access and use the tool independently. If directions are needed, then the directions are given once. Student can complete task individually without prompts from the teacher (0 prompts to complete task).
Level 4- (Rehearsal)
Student requires no physical assistance or physical contact to complete the task. Student is able to consistently complete task independently. Student will complete task under supervision from an adult in at least two different settings. If directions are required, the directions will only need to be repeated once. If a reference tool is required, the student may need to be reminded to use the reference tool but will know how to use the tool (0-1 prompts to complete task)
Level 3- (Application)
Student requires no physical assistance or physical contact to complete task. Student will consistently complete task in at least one setting with one adult when provided with one of the following prompts; verbal, gestural, and/or modeling prompt. If directions are required, the directions will only need to be repeated once. If a reference tool is required the student may need to be reminded to use the reference tool but not how to use the tool (1 prompt to complete task)
Level 2- (Emerging)
Student is instructionally ready, but is inconsistent in completing task even when provided with multiple prompts (verbal or gestural) supports and/or modeling. Student requires repeated directions to complete task. Reference tools are introduced and taught and are not used independently even with prompting (2 + prompts are needed to complete task).
Level 1 (Redirection)
Skill has been introduced, but student requires direct teacher intervention to complete task due to refusal behaviors. Prompts used may be physical (such as hand-over-hand, hand on shoulder, etc), verbal directions such as repeated step by step directions, and/or modeling (3 + prompts are needed to complete task)
Level 0 (Dependent)
Skill has been introduced, but student is not making progress even with repeated prompts and supports, and requires full assistance (including hand-over-hand) to complete skills and/or tasks. This is due either to inability (such as a physical disability) or lack of prerequisite skills, and not due to behavior (task cannot be completed even with multiple prompts and physical assistance).
If a skill has not been introduced or taught, then the student will not receive any score in that area.
