Writing Measurable Goals
Our friends at the Illinois State Board of Education wanted to make sure we passed along the following links to help with understanding the process for writing measurable goals. This is also embedded in the updated Power Point, and subsequent PDF of the notes section.
Developing Meaningful IEPs and Utilizing the New Illinois Learning Standards at http://www.isbe.net/spec-ed/Default.htm (under "Recent Webinars"); and
IEP Quality Tutorial at https://iepq.education.illinois.edu/public/about.
The webinar in section A is approximately 45 minutes long. The Quality tutorial is a project from the University of Illinois – Champaign. Some of our teachers participated in this project in the past few years.
Please do not hesitate to ask questions. We recognize some of our goals are harder to benchmark in the format we outlined earlier. Related service providers have begun the discussion in focus groups to determine best solutions for each unique area. Contact your SEA liaison if you would like to learn more information.
