Abstract

Progress monitoring is a set of techniques used to assess students’ academic performance on a regular and frequent basis. Different forms of progress monitoring have been used effectively in the field of general special education for more than 20 years. However, to date, limited information about how progress monitoring is being used in the field of deaf education is available. The present study was undertaken to examine how progress monitoring is being used with students who are deaf or hard of hearing and to find out teachers’ perceptions about the utilization and value of using progress monitoring. Overall, participants were very positive. They reported that the use of progress monitoring improved students’ motivation and helped them better evaluate the effectiveness of their instruction. Participants’ primary concern was with the amount of time progress monitoring takes away from teaching. Additional results and recommendations are provided.
