SNAP-PM

Special Needs Assessment Program for Progress Monitoring (SNAP-PM) is a set of computer applications used to record, monitor and assess the progress of Special Needs Kids towards goals that are outlined in their Individual Education Program.

 

This software will be used for creating the assessment portion of the objectives of Individual Education Programs (IEP) for a class of students and then entering assessment data and monitoring each student’s progress towards the goals that are detailed in the IEP.

 

There are two applications: SNAP-PM (Special Needs Assessment Program) for the desktop and PocketSNAP-PM for the PDA/handheld. These applications will provide a teacher with a methodology to define the IEP objectives for each individual student and then, for each individual educational objective, enter assessment data and track this assessment data as it relates to the specific metrics that have been set for the student.

The SNAP-PM is based on the HOAM™ (Hierachical Objective Assessment Model) that was developed by TekResults in early 2004 and is the second application to utilize this flexible approach to creating assessment software.

 

Please contact TekResults Ltd. for a paper outlining HOAM and it's applicability to all types of assessment activities.
