Thanks!

Grade-level goals are written using norm referenced and curriculum based measurements like DIBELs, AIMs web, SRI, DRA, etc.

Say you have a second-grader with a reading goal.

For on-level you would write the goal to reflect being at grade-level by the end of second grade: "John will read 120 correct words per minute by the end of second grade." John's progress would be reflected at where his scores fall based on the grade-level norms (50 correct words per minute puts him in X percentile of all second graders).

I write on-level goals based on rate of previous progress.

So, if John mastered 10 letter sounds in first grade, his goal in second grade could be mastering 16 letter sounds. You would also include mastery criteria in this goal as well.

You could also write an off grade level goal using curriculum based measurements. Say for a fifth-grader reading at a second-grade level and report out on the goals based on second-grade norms: "this would put John at X percentile of second-graders."

to add, grade level is what ever typical peers on that child's grade level do. For example, if a kid is in 2nd grade, then he would get goals based on the standards or Common Core

for on-level, you may have a 2nd grader but he is on a Kindergarten level so his on-level goal would be based on Kindgergarten standards, not 2nd grade.

IEP goals vs. grade level

IEP goals are to help the student with an IEP to make progress on the disability that they have academically or vocationally. Goal levels will differ depending on the abilities. Let's say that a 2nd grade child is able to read at grade level, but comprehend at a lower level. The case manager may make a goal for that child to read a 2nd grade level, and comprehend at a low 2nd grade level. To start with the child may begin learning to comprehend at a kindergarten level and then next quarter at a 1st grade level and then finally at a 2.0 level.

Another child may have a learning disability in math and need to learn their times tables. A grade level goal would be appropriate at this because this goal at the 3rd grade is something all kids are learning but this kid may need to have modifications in place to reach that goal.

I hope this helped.
