Cohort 1 Model Demonstration Projects
Progress Monitoring in Elementary Reading Instruction
In January 2006, OSEP funded the first cohort of model demonstration projects. Cohort 1 consisted of three projects that focused on approaches to progress monitoring for elementary school children in general education and special education classes. Regular tracking of children’s preliteracy and reading skills was used to
Monitor children’s progress in those skills
Identify children who were not responding to regular classroom instruction and were in need of a different or more intense instructional approach
Monitor progress against Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals for children who were referred to and found eligible forspecial education services.
Cohort 1 models were developed and implemented from January 2006 to December 2009.
