Now Here’s a Thought..
We measure what we treasure!
Present Levels of
Educational Performance
In order to write clear and measurable
goals you must first establish clear and
measurable current present levels of
educational performance (PLEP).
Present Levels of
Educational Performance
should…
1) Be data driven (measurable
and observable)
2) Identify strengths and
prioritize needs
3) Provide a starting point for
development of goals
4) Guide development of other
areas of the GIEP
Data Driven

Current assessment information
must be the foundation for writing
PLEPs!

weakness or closing the gap due to acceleration


psychological/social issues so student has insight
into his giftedness, maintains a positive outlook,
and remains motivated to learn

Provisions for learning preferences, personality
characteristics, or interests

Evaluate PLEPs

Are statements precise or
vague?
Is there a basis for measurable
goals?


Provide mechanisms by which progress
will be measured


outcome for each annual goal
