With IEP season also comes the opportunity to revisit COS forms, including completing Time 2 data for those students transitioning to kindergarten or exiting special education.
As teams summarize information on student progress to include on the COS form, it is helpful to remember:
-Each outcome should reflect a student’s level of functioning across areas and situations. If you’re unsure what information to report under each outcome, click for crosswalks to common assessment tools and a list of guiding questions organized by outcome statement.
-The team completing the COS form should include at least 2-3 people familiar with the student, including the family. Click for resources and materials to assist in talking with families about the COS process.
Additionally, the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center has developed several self-directed learning modules on various child outcomes topics.
