Is the growth report for the reading inventory, the same for special education students and general education students?

Background: A 9th grade student with about a 700 Lexile, increased 9 point from late October 2019 to mid January 2020. Student struggles with processing speed and comprehension.

    Yes, the Growth Report is the same for a special education student and a general education student. I think I would give a ninth grader with so little growth the Phonics Inventory to see if the student needs a program like System 44 instead of READ 180. It might be that the student is reading at a 700L level because of adaptations on the student's part to cope with not understanding phonics. Dee, Ask Dee at the Community
