Since I mainly work with students in Tier III interventions, it is vital that I track their progress, but all students benefit from timely monitoring of their progress. Formative assessments provide teachers with so much information. Are the students on track? Are they growing? Are they growing at a rate that will allow them to get on track with their peers?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, then we as teachers know that something needs to change. If I look at the results of progress monitoring and see a stagnant line, that tells me I need to change the interventions my kiddos are getting. Obviously these particularly strategies are not working with these particular students.
One area that many of my students are working to improve is their reading fluency. To help track their fluency progress, I created four Fluency Tracking Sheets.
The four sheets have different ranges of words per minute on them, making them useable for any grade level. They are great visuals for seeing how students are progressing. They're available for free on TPT. You can get to them by clicking: Fluency Tracking Sheets.
I hope you find them useful too!
