Ave: PM is a software suite designed to help monitor the literacy development of students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Our presentation will address the issues associated with using traditional progress monitoring tools and briefly demonstrate four new assessments designed specifically for students with a hearing loss. Each assessment includes three elements: A student interface that presents the assessment and gathers student performance data; a teacher-scoring tool; and a data visualization component that displays longitudinal student-progress. We will also report on the results of an empirical study to collect data about the usability of images used in one of the new assessments: Picture Naming. This study is currently in progress; data-collection and analysis will be completed by the end of the current academic year.
