Assists the University of Illinois in its development and extension of a previous IES project to develop and test a Web-based IEP Quality Tutorial to assist educators and parents in the development of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) that go beyond meeting procedural requirements to reach the substantive components of IEPs. New components to be developed include: (a) integration of the Common Core State Standards, (b) inclusion of social/emotional/behavioral goals and related service needs, (c) content modules for formative assessment of high priority annual goals, and (d) online training videos and user guidance for the tutorial Web site. The IEP Quality Project will assist the University of Illinois with its work on aligning to the Common Core State Standards, developing standards-relevant probes, and organizing and analyzing student outcome data.
