Question??
 What is the single biggest factor that determines
what instructional goals a child will be held
accountable to?
Tanya Morret 2013
Children have three ages…
 Chronological – based on birth
 Emotional – based on maturity
 Intellectual – based on the ability to apply
knowledge and skills
Tanya Morret 2013
Ground Rules?
General Education is aligned to the standards.
Goals must be aligned to standards to show growth (measureable) over the
period of time (annual cycle) covered by the GIEP.
GIEP’s are to be individualized in the demonstrated strength area, and not
reflect a “program.”
Options for educational placement are Enrichment, Acceleration, or
Acceleration with Enrichment – not remediation.
GIEP Goals are supported by the Present Levels of Educational Performance.
Schools have a variety of tools to establish instructional levels.
Tanya Morret 2013
Essential Questions
 What role do the PLEPS play in the GIEP?
 How should the PLEPs be organized in the GIEP?
 How do you translate PLEPs into goals?
Tanya Morret 2013
What purpose do PLEPS serve?
 Does
this child need enrichment?
 Does this child need acceleration?
 Does this child need a combination of
both?
Tanya Morret PAGE 2013
Tanya Morret PAGE 2013
Tanya Morret PAGE 2013
According to Chapter 16
 What is enrichment?
Guidelines : In-depth learning
experiences that provide interaction with
new ideas, skills and topics that enhance
the curriculum. These experiences are
based upon individual student strengths,
interests and needs.
By any other name….
Tanya Morret PAGE 2013
Acceleration
 Early entrance to school (ES= .50)
 Subject acceleration (ES=0.6)
 Concurrent enrollment
 Advanced Placement courses (ES= .27)
 Early admission to college (ES= .30)
 Credit by examination (ES= .60)
 Compacting the Curriculum - (ES= .83)
ES= Effect sizes- Rogers (2002)

PLEP - Guiding Ideas
 Current (within last year)
 Strength Area(s)
 Indicate present Mastery Level (instructional
levels)
 Measureable/Show Growth
 Not a standard list
Tanya Morret 2013
Current Levels + Expected Growth=GOAL
 Where were they?
 Where are they now?
 What can we expect in the future?
• State Minimum – One year of
growth for every year in school
• Is that enough for our gifted
students?

 How would you characterize this student as a learner and a
thinker?
 What have you observed in or out of the classroom that has
enhanced or prohibited this child’s learning?

Narrative
Tanya Morret PAGE 2013
PLEP’s
 The student and teacher reported he has a passion for any items, topics, books,
documentaries, etc. related to the Civil War.

His general education teacher reports in the teacher checklist: He is most
successful when assignments are chunked with clear intermediate deadlines. He
is more likely to learn information from visual or auditory means, rather than
solely relying on text. He has a keen short and long term memory and often
requires only one or two presentations of information before he is independently
questioning and expanding his understanding.

His general and gifted support teacher report in the teacher checklist: He does
well with graphic organizers. He likes to repeat information out loud to assure he
understands concepts. He prefers to work independently, but will work in groups
where he feels his expertise/creativity is recognized and appreciated. He can
easily synthesize information across content areas and contexts.
Tanya Morret 2013

 Achievement Results
 Assessment results that indicate instructional levels to direct
curriculum placement and goal development
 PSSA and PVAAS data, Keystone Results, DIBELS,
BENCHMARK TESTS, CBA’s, end of unit tests, CDT’s
(classroom diagnostic tools), 4Sight, Star, AIMS web, MAP
(measure of academic progress), Study Island,
Tanya Morret 2013
PLEP’s
 Achievement Results

In the spring of third grade, _____took the PSSA assessments and scored Advanced (1681)
in Reading (98th %ile) and Advanced (1654) in Math (80th %ile) . PVAAS projections for 4th
%ile with a 90% Achievement probability to score Advanced.

In the fall of fourth grade, ___received a composite score of 391, on the BOY DIBELS Next
assessment, which places him well above benchmark (when individual scores were broken
down, he was consistently in the 99%ile locally for all subtests). He was then assessed on
an out of level BM and based on his composite score of 6th grade level End of Year
assessment he is reading at the 90%ile. Further investigation was done using the QRI and
he was found to be able to read and comprehend with 90% accuracy at a sixth grade
instructional level.

On the district math assessments, (4Sight) ________scored Advanced (28) in the BOY
and quarter and Proficient in the MOY.

Note to GIEP Team: Is this a red flag? Going from Advanced to Proficient….
Tanya Morret 2013
PLEP’s
 Progress on Goals
 Failure to make progress on previous goals may indicate
further investigation is needed to determine the underlying
cause. Here is where a GIEP team may refer an
underachieving student for a re-evaluation.
 If this is an initial GIEP, this section will not need to be
completed.
Tanya Morret 2013
PLEP’s
 Goal
Given an opportunity to choose a topic, Matt will
enrich and expand his writing to a proficient or higher level
using criteria from the 8th grade level standards or as
pre-determined on a learning contract.

 The scale of evaluation should be included. We should be able
to understand where the child falls in the over-all evaluation
picture.
 The student earned an 85% average in Mathematics for the
last four marking periods. (please note, this may span more
 The student scored outstanding (highest rating out of three) in
math problem solving.

Meet Matt…..
 Strength/Passion in Writing
 March of his seventh grade year
 GIEP Planning for 8th Grade
 What type of goal do we write if he is working at an 8th
grade level in some of his writing skills (conventions are
superior), but the development of his style and content is
still a work in progress. He earns good grades with
minimal effort. Enjoys both informative and narrative
writing.
 What are the expectations for 8th grade writing?
