Is anyone using the cloze passage % as a progress monitoring measure for comprehension on IEPs?

Trying to find a way to use the read 180 data reports for progress monitoring - fluency measures are easier, the cloze passage mimics the CBM such as AImsweb....

    You can use that measure. Be careful how you describe the measure in the IEPs. Teachers with whom I have worked did not cite READ 180 in the IEP except as an example of something that might be used. That meant that if a decision was made to change the specific intervention that an additional case conference did not have to be assembled. Sally Doulton has three blog posts in the last couple months about IEPs. She blogs for System 44, but she includes READ 180 techniques in her posts. Take a look at those for some ideas. Also, Debbie Lee has a couple blog posts about using SAM data for IEPs. Just do a general search in the search box at the top of this page and then click on blogs to narrow it. Debbie's posts will appear. Dee Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
