In this post we will discuss:

Before we get started, let's quickly review what a Goal Stem & Stem Level are:

Goal Stem = what the goal is targeting
โ€‹Stem Level = the levels at which you target the goal

e.g., Goal Stem = produce /r/, Stem Levels = at word level, at phrase level

1. Creating Stem Levels Using Goals from the Goal Bank

If you are choosing a goal from the goal bank, there are set stem levels attached to each goal. You'll need to select an area from the Filter by Area dropdown and then select a Goal Stem. If the goal has Stem Levels available, they will show to the right of the Goal Stem. You can click "add" for as many Stem Levels as you would like to track.

All of the selected Stem Levels will then show next to your student's Goal Stems in their Caseload profile:

You will also be able to take data on each Stem Level selected using the live Data Collection tool.

2. Creating Stem Levels Using a Custom Goal

To add a Stem Level to a custom goal, you must first create a custom Goal Stem. You can use the Quick Add Custom Goal + button and then scroll down to the goal you added and click Edit:

Or you can hit the Add Goal + button and then + Create Custom Goal.

You can add however many custom Stem Levels as you need under your custom Goal Stem. Click Add Level, and then Save.

3. Collecting Data on Stem Levels

When using the live Data Collection Tool, you can select the Stem Level you want to target from the dropdown to take data on that Stem Level. If you wish to take data on another Stem Level, click the Take Data for Another Level button.
