Tracking data is imperative to our job as special educators to ensure our students are making progress. Of course, easier said than done while we are balancing myriad spinning plates. I highly recommend creating a Google Forms data tracking system, which is accessible and efficient, and applicable to distance and in person learning.
- A Google Form can be downloaded to any service provider’s phone to collect information such as tracking IEP goals, behavioral interventions, service provider minutes, or parent communication.
- After working with a student, one can quickly fill out the form, which aggregates to a different spreadsheet and eliminates the need for a large volume of accumulated data entry.
- Lastly, Forms can be updated online and reduce the need to reprint and redistribute data tracking sheets after an updated IEP or FBA. You will be saving a forest not having to print out so many updated documents!
Here is a video to walk you through the basics of creating a Google Forms system:
Here are other examples of Google Forms to provide ideas of how this system can be applied to your classroom.

Feel free to make a copy of any of these forms as a starting point.
