Chart: Review of Progress Monitoring Tools
The National Center on Student Progress Monitoring has created a chart of scientifically based tools to measure students' progress. Determine which one best fits your school's needs.
The National Center on Student Progress Monitoring's Technical Review Committee (TRC) established a standard process to evaluate the scientific rigor of commercially available tools to monitor student's progress.
The tools chart below reflects the results of four annual reviews that the TRC completed. Across the top of the chart are the standards by which the TRC reviewed each tool. The left side of the chart lists all of the tools that have been reviewed.
Detailed information about the standards the TRC used to evaluate the programs, as well as specifics about each commercial program — including the cost of the tool, what is needed to implement it, the support you will receive from the vendor, how the tool is intended to be used, and with whom it should be used — can be found at the Review of Progress Monitoring Tools on The National Center on Student Progress Monitoring's website.
