Progress Monitoring and Reporting

When completing the goal section with this model, you will typically have a choice between a progress monitoring (graph) format or a progress reporting (text) format. If you select a progress monitoring format, you will also need to specify the baseline date and score, as well as the target (goal) date and score.
