Abstract: Establishing initial baselines is crucial for evidencing student growth in value-added teacher evaluations. This article described a process utilizing web-based assessment to (a) efficiently gather baselines from a sample self-contained class in the classroom, (b) project individualized academic growth targets, (c) progress monitor performance on English Language Arts constructs aligned to state standards, and (d) develop a scoring plan to evaluate teacher effectiveness. The following Student Learning Target was developed: Eight of the ten students in the class will demonstrate growth in literacy skills as evidenced by 20% or more growth between baselines and post assessments with easyCBM™ measurements. The method is especially applicable to low-performing students in multiple grade level and multiple content learning environments. Keywords: classroom assessment, special education, technology, value-added models
