About SPS

A DATA ANALYSIS & REPORTING SYSTEM BUILT BY TEACHERS FOR TEACHERS

Since the original Launch in 2007, the IDEAL team has worked closely with building leaders, teachers, and specialists to develop a system that would make data-based decision making manageable for all educators. The end result is a "performance" system which guides and supports today's busy educators as they use a streamlined approach for producing reports, tables, and charts to summarize students' academic and social/emotional/behavioral growth across time.

SPS works seamlessly with numerous, standardized universal screening & progress monitoring measures, including:

  • DIBELS 6th Edition
  • DIBELS Next
  • DIVS (Dynamic Indicators of Vocabulary Skills)
  • FastBridge Learning (FAST)
  • Group Reading Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation (GRADE)
  • The Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment Systems
  • myIGDIs (preschool-Individual Growth & Development Indicators)
  • Curriculum-Based Measures (CBM) of Early Literacy, Reading, Early Numeracy, Math, & Written Expression
  • The Student Risk Screening Scale – Internalizing and Externalizing (SRSS-IE)

SPS is different from other data systems

SPS was not built to be a data warehouse or information receptacle whereas users have difficulty accessing and/or making sense of important student information. Rather, SPS offers educators an interactive interface which will allow them to make timely, meaningful, educational decisions about their students.

For example, SPS facilitates the process of (a) allocating services within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), (b) determining responsiveness to universal, strategic, and/or intensive instruction, (c) developing and monitoring specific, measurable, relevant student goals, and (d) determining entitlement for special education services.

In addition, SPS allows teachers and specialists a user-friendly platform for using research-based normative growth rates to examine student learning as a component of an educator evaluation platform.

SPS allows users to implement a streamlined approach for producing reports, tables, and charts which summarize students’ academic and social/emotional/behavioral growth across time.
SPS has a robust Progress Monitoring platform which allows both on- and off-level monitoring for all grades and measurement tools within the system. Such flexibility allows users to monitor students at their instructional levels, which is considered best practice.
SPS offers Grade-Level Data Meeting (GLDM) PowerPoint Presentations to make it easier for you and your staff to present universal screening results in a user-friendly, systematic manner.
