Research Institution

Through previous research and development, the team created a teacher platform that suggests research-based strategies for supporting students with special needs or targeted skill gaps. This project will develop a prototype of a dashboard for teachers to create, access, and track student's Individual Educational Plans (IEPs). At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study with six middle school special education teachers, the researchers will examine whether the new prototype functions as planned, if teachers are able to successfully create targeted, measurable, and appropriate IEPs for their students, and implement appropriate instructional strategies to support achieving those goals.
