Template: Task Analysis
Collecting standards based assessment data can be tricky business, especially when measuring skills against grade level standards for students with complex needs. Using the grade level standard, extended standards, and learning progressions can help to capture each student’s current skills and identify which skills need additional work. The template for Task Analysis can be used to stretch academic standards into their smallest parts or skills. This document can then be used to populate the Tiered Planning Template standards section as we as assist in the design of assessment blueprints. As a student specific data tool, this document can be used to identify present levels of performance and identify specific skills for future IEP goals and objectives.
