Title I law requires Title I programs to
report on an individual student’s adequate yearly progress.
It is up to the Title I teacher to monitor progress in all of the grades
they serve. A review of each Title I student’s progress is conducted
to determine if students are making adequate yearly progress. A minimum
of three assessment criteria must be used to measure student progress.
Title I teachers are required to track the progress of all students
served in the Title I program. It is also important that they document
of these assessments.
- A minimum of three different assessments must be used to
record the progress of all Title I students.
- These assessments may be
objective or subjective. For example, the Title I teacher could use
narrative progress reports as one assessment criteria.
- A portfolio, documenting
the progress of each child and showing the three assessments that
were used, must be maintained on each Title I student.
- Each of the three assessments
must be given to each student at least twice a year, preferably more
- Different assessment tools can be used at each grade level.
- Title I
teachers are required to use three assessments in reading if the
student is receiving
- Title I services in reading, and if serving
the student in math,
three math assessment measures.
- Title I teachers must provide parents
of all Title I students with the child’s
individual assessment results.
