Tracking and Documenting

What it is

The systematic, ongoing gathering of data to document student progress and the effectiveness of a strategy.

Strategies

• Develop a template to easily and quickly record data.
• Develop a clear focus for the data collection.
• Track at predetermined intervals, not constantly.
• Ensure the method of tracking fits with what you are tracking (e.g. anecdotal vs. checklist).
• Examples of tracking methods include rubrics, checklists, marks, anecdotal observations, portfolios, tests, Antecedent, Behaviour and Consequence (ABC) chart (please note that the “C” means what occurred immediately after and not the consequence put into place as a discipline measure).
• Include student self-assessments.
