Abstract: Ave: PM is a web-based progress monitoring system we designed to help teachers to monitor their children's literacy The software presents students with brief assessments and uses novel interfaces to help teachers score the assessments Scoring data are recorded in a database and presented to teachers in a visualization system to help them to determine whether individual students are making adequate progress We will present the results of two investigations First, we will report data addressing the reliability of two of the assessments included in the software Second, we will present the results of a study exploring how teachers use data to improve their instruction Teachers reviewed three case studies supported by various types of data and identified which data sets showed that a student was making progress and were most informative
