Gathering data with very little instructional time
My position is a new and challenging one. I am an intervention teacher but am treated like a specials rotation. I see all students but for only 50 minutes each week, once a week. I need to collect data on them to monitor improvements. This is a difficult task because I do not spend much time with them and I am having trouble deciding on what to collect data and how to go about it. Any suggestions?

I would suggets using a computer based assessment tool such as MAZE or Easy CBM to frequently and informally assess their progress. One of the benefits of the computer based assessments are the quick results and ease at establishing a baseline score and progress monitoring. As for what to collect data on, choose something that closely aligns with the reasons they need an intervention.

One possibility might be to ask the child's regular teachers to send any work samples relating to specific documentation that you need. Otherwise, I would prioritize and try to focus on the most important standards that you are covering each week.

At my school we use All-In. It is a computer program where you create assessment keys, print bubble answer sheets, and use a document camera to grade the answer sheets right there in front of the student. There is also an option to get 'clickers' which speeds up the assessment feedback process even more. I use the All-In program for everything from unit tests with 35 questions to bell-ringers that may only be 1 or 2 questions. It is a great way to not only see student improvement, but it is a great conversation starter with students so they can quickly see their results as well.

What subject(s) are you implementing interventions with? I would look for online activties and programs that the students could complete that automatically collects data for your use.

My first move would be to work with teachers as much as possible to identify what they are doing in the classroom. They are with them longer and would naturally be able to provide you with data to start with. From there I develop a system using an assessment that would be easy for you assess. I would get with the principal to see what type of technology programs your school has that may assist with the collection of data.
