Presentation for the Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. This presentation explored the "what" and "how" of using formative assessment for evaluating children's progress within Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education. Formative assessment results for individual children can then be aggregated to the program/school and state levels to measure progress on the State-identified Measurable Result (SIMR). Participants were invited to share which assessments are used in their states and their experiences with using these assessments to measure progress at individual, program/school, and state levels.
