Student Progress Log

If your student is struggling in a subject (often reading) and it would be beneficial to track daily or weekly progress

Teach It!

  1. Objective: Track student progress on the key metrics that are crucial to learning success.
  2. Teacher Takeaways: Developing automaticity in core skills might require more formal tracking for some students to ensure they are showing growth and so you can easily identify areas for remediation.
  3. Instruction: a) Identify the core metrics that you will measure and how often they will be tracked. In reading it might be words per minute, phonemes mastered or Lexile level. In math it could be math facts mastered or time per fact. b) Create a chart that includes your metrics and a line for each time you will measure them, e.g. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 c) Be sure to leave sufficient space to log the information you need. d) While you can certainly track online, you might prefer to print out the sheet so you have it readily available when you are with the student. Depending on the situation, this might be a log that you ask the student or the parent to fill in

Why It Works (the Science Of Learning)!

For skills like reading and math facts mastery, ongoing repetition is often essential for students to retain and grow their knowledge and automaticity. Tracking progress can help ensure that students are continuing to grow and are not losing ground. While there are many ways to track progress, a written progress log can be an easy-to-use and effective tool.
