Learning how to develop goals as part of the IEP is required for special education professionals. IEP goals should be “SMART” and based on good educational practice.
Post an initial post addressing each of the following:
- In one paragraph, assess the effectiveness of Mr. Franklin and Mrs. Mills’ practices for measuring and evaluating Bianca’s progress. Use support from at least two scholarly sources, one of which may be the course textbook.
- In one paragraph explain Bianca’s present levels of performance in a selected content area. You will need to refer to the Instructor Guidance for specific information.
- In a list, develop at least three recommended goals for Bianca based on her current performance level and identified areas of need. Be sure that your suggested goals are SMART goals and that they include the five required components which makes a goal SMART. Include a justification for why you recommend these goals, drawing support from at least two scholarly sources, one of which may be the course textbook.
