Special Education Platform
Online tools for special education assessments, special education interventions, and real-time student progress monitoring
Develop IEPs and PLAAFP statements with data from our special education assessments
Let’s Go Learn’s special education platform provides online tools to support the Individual Education Program (IEP) process and ensure Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) for every student with disabilities. That’s why our special education diagnostic assessments accurately identify learner strengths and weaknesses at a skill and concept level regardless of grade level. That’s why our data reporting provides objective and measurable student performance information for Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP) statements. And that’s why our tools cut IEP development time in half.
To ensure ongoing student achievement, we also provide reading and math instructional interventions with one-click student progress monitoring using our benchmark and formative assessments.
Let’s Go Learn’s special education platform is appropriate for most students with disabilities, including students with cognitive disabilities, learning disabilities, and language impairment.
Achieve ongoing academic progress for students with disabilities
Step 1: Our special education assessments analyze and evaluate each individual child’s standards-based learning gaps and present levels to support development of PLAAFP statements.
Step 2: School IEP teams develop IEPs using accurate, measurable data and data narratives from our special education diagnostic assessments.
Step 3: Our special education interventions provide specially designed instruction (SDI) in reading and math delivered at the appropriate zone of proximal development (ZPD) for each student. Teachers can always self-select lesson assignments.
Step 4: To ensure ongoing student progress monitoring throughout the school year, we provide standards-based formative assessments that are vertically scaled into the original dataset.
Step 5: Our special education platform tracks, saves, compares, and reports on student performance from the initial special education assessments to the special education interventions in reading and math to the formative assessments and benchmarks. No data collection required by teachers.
LGL provides reporting and narratives in English and Spanish for classroom teachers and parents of students with disabilities.
Why use Let’s Go Learn’s Special Education Programs? Let our customers explain!
“Students at the Boys & Girls Club of the Suncoast love Let’s Go Learn lessons. They have music and animation and are like games! The more they play, the more they learn!”
“Let’s Go Learn is a lifesaver. They have assessments that diagnose gaps and automatically place students at the best instructional level. Plus there are built-in formative assessments and progress monitoring that allow me to focus on what each student needs.”
Step 1: Special Education Assessments in Reading and Math
Our diagnostic assessments are adaptive, so student performance determines if items related to a specific concept become more or less difficult. The result is an accurate analysis of learning gaps and strengths and a decrease in test anxiety.
Special education math assessments are aligned to state educational standards. For elementary students, test items measure numbers and operations, measurement, data analysis, geometry, and algebraic thinking. For middle school students and secondary students, assessments include PreAlgebra and Algebra 1.
Step 2: IEP-Aligned Diagnostic Assessment Reporting
Our assessment reporting is organized to support IEP requirements: goals, benchmarks, and PLAAFP/present level equivalencies for all subskills. With our next-generation tools, classroom teachers can focus on creating the optimal instruction for students rather than on statistical analysis.
“Our IEP teams report a 50% time savings in writing their IEPs with LGL’s aligned data and narratives.”
Step 3: Specially Designed Instruction That Addresses IEP Goals for Students with Disabilities
Using artificial intelligence (AI) and student diagnostic data, our platform creates math and reading special education interventions composed of SDI lessons that address each individual’s learning gaps. Teachers can use our interventions as supplemental curriculum, knowing that each student’s unique learning needs are being met. Teachers can also select and assign lessons to individual students as needed.
Our special education interventions are especially appropriate for students with disabilities because they:
- Correlate to all state standards
- Integrate critical thinking strategies with standards-based skills development
- Include direct instruction and practice
- Provide feedback for incorrect responses
- Use assistive technology by combining music, voice intonation, animation, and game-like interactivity
Step 4: Built-In Formative Assessments that Auto-Adjust Personalized Learning Paths
With a few clicks, classroom teachers can assign our built-in formative quizzes and assessments to individual students with disabilities at regular intervals. Not only do these ensure that students have mastered learning objectives, but they ensure FAPE compliance. Formative assessments can be used to monitor educational progress in all educational environments, including response to intervention (RTI) programs, afterschool programs, and summer school. Our next-gen system uses the formative assessment data to automatically update each student’s learning path.
LESSON QUIZZES: At daily or weekly intervals, teachers queue up quizzes on skills or concepts learned in the classroom or online. The system then assesses mastery and reports on, compares, and stores the data.
UNIT ASSESSMENTS: At weekly, monthly, or quarterly intervals, teachers queue up assessments for targeted units. The system analyzes and reports the data. Then it updates the student’s learning path.
Step 5: One-Click Progress Monitoring
Our special education platform provides student progress monitoring in real-time:
- Capturing and storing all student test data into a single vertically-scaled dataset
- Presenting data in meaningful progress reports
- Supporting continuous IEP progress monitoring and benchmark and goal attainment
- Providing reporting in English and Spanish for parents and caregivers of students with disabilities
- Providing reports for special education services with quarterly and annual compliance testing data
- Providing data collection for special education teachers at school districts, whether they provide public education or private education
