December is time for progress monitoring!
The Progress Monitoring online course is available at pd.casenex.com.
December is here, and many of you may be wondering how much your students have learned since they arrived in the fall. What adjustments are needed in your instructional planning to meet this growth? PALS Mid-Year materials will become available in the PALS Online System by mid-December.
PALS Mid-Year is a flexible tool that offers options to suit your district's goals and support continued student growth.
All Wisconsin students are required to complete fall 2013 and spring 2014 administrations of PALS in 4K, 5K, and first grade, including students who made perfect scores in fall. Most students who scored above the Summed Score benchmark in the fall still have room for growth in literacy skills. Completing spring administration (including the optional PALS-K Word Recognition in Isolation task, when appropriate) will allow teachers to monitor student growth, and will inform instructional decisions as these students prepare to enter the next grade.
