Sometimes a teacher wants to progress monitor using assessments from a lower grade level due to a student performing below grade-level expectations. The FastBridge system allows educators to do this during the Progress Monitoring setup workflow. This article guides users through changing the grade level of the probes used in progress monitoring.
Before You Begin
The assessment will need to be enabled for students at the needed grade level. For example, if an educator wants to progress monitor a second grader using an earlyReading subtest, a District or School Manager will first need to enable earlyReading for use with second graders. If you do not see the assessment needed when setting up a progress monitoring schedule, reach out to a District or School Manager in settings to ask them to follow the instructions in the article, Add Assessments to School, to enable the requested assessment
Once progress monitoring data has been collected, the form level cannot be changed. You will need to release the student and add them back to the group with the correct form level.
To progress monitor off-grade level using a reading assessment, follow the process to set up a new progress monitoring schedule. At the bottom of the Monitoring Schedule slideout pane, change the level by clicking on the grade number. Then, use the dropdown menu to select the appropriate form level. "Gx" indicates that the measure is the same level for all grades.
To progress monitor off-grade level using a math assessment, follow the process to set up a new progress monitoring schedule. Near the top of the Monitoring Schedule slideout pane, there's an option to select a Monitoring Assessment. The options in the table will appear in the dropdown menu, provided they have all been enabled by a School or District Manager in your settings. A teacher has the ability to select whichever assessment and level they’d like under the Monitoring Assessment option.

If the Teacher or Specialist selects CBMmath CAP, the grade level must be selected at the bottom of the Monitoring Schedule slideout panel. Then, use the dropdown menu to select the appropriate form level. "Gx" indicates that the measure only has one level available.
