- Identify Struggling Students - Since all the data is stored in a central database, administrators can easily access data for any individual student. This makes it easy to identify those who would benefit from additional help or program changes.
- Parental support - With helpful printouts, you can visually portray a student's developmental profile to parents or other educators; and plan the best methods to help the student at school and at home.
- Essential developmental data - A DTORF Online rating automatically generates specific information:
Total skills and competencies acquired to date (the total DTORF raw score)
IEP instructional objectives selected from competencies needed but not yet achieved.
General stage of social-emotional-behavioral development.
Stage for developmentally appropriate instruction.
Age peer comparison score.
Recommended positive behavior management based on rating.
Options at baseline rating to predict an end-of-the-year outcome score.
Options to print a Group DTORF of selected objectives for several students in the same class, showing the range of actual items to be an instructional focus.
- Program quality monitoring - End-of-Year summaries can be obtained for individual students, teachers, or programs. Reports on individual students include:
Results from previous ratings.
Current total DTORF competency score.
Gain/loss since previous rating.
Current age peer comparison score.
Percentage of age peer score achieved by student.
Severity of developmental delay, if any.
Changes in severity of developmental delay.
Changes in age peer comparisons.
