Platform Improves Goals Written for IEPs

2/25/2014 12:00:00 AM

According to a recent study by San Francisco State University (SFSU), Goalbook helps ensure a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is aligned to standards and differentiated according to the student’s needs.

Dr. Susan J. Courey, professor of special education at SFSU, along with faculty member Dr. Phyllis M. Tappe, conducted the study to help their student teachers develop more personalized learning goals for their students. The professors developed a research-based rubric and evaluated the goals written by their students, assigning each a score on a 20-point scale.

The goals developed using Goalbook as a resource scored an average of 17.5, compared to an average score of 5.0 for goals developed without Goalbook.
