Definition of PLOP (Present Level of Performance) Also known as the PLP or the present level of academic and functional performance (PLAAFP), the present level of performance is the portion of your child’s IEP that details how he is doing academically at the moment. An assessment which should be done freshly and thoroughly each year, a PLOP should include a detailed description of. PLAAFP stands for present level of academic achievement and functional performance. Some states/districts refer to it as PLAAFP, some as PLOP and some as PLP.
The PLOP serves as a starting point, or baseline, for the coming year’s IEP. If your child has an Individualized Education Program ( ), the IEP team will meet every year to bring it up to date. Present levels of performance (PLOP) The Present Levels of Educational Performance (also known as PLOP) is a requirement under IDEA and it must indicate how the student is currently doing in school.
I call it Present Levels or PLOP, for Present Levels of Performance. You may hear it referred to by other names and abbreviations: PLEP: Present Levels of Educational Performance (this is outdated and really shouldn’t be used) PLAAFP: Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance; PLOP: for Present Levels of Performance. The Present Level of Educational Performance (PLOP) section of an Individualized Education Program (IEP) “is a written description of the student’s strengths, areas of concern and learning styles” (Virginia Department of Education, 1998, p. 14). Historically, IEPs contained information about a student’s present levels of performance (PLOP), also referred to as present levels of educational performance (PLEP) in some schools or districts. When Congress reauthorized IDEA in 2004, this was changed to the present levels of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP).
Your child’s present level of performance (PLOP) is key in setting annual goals. (You may also hear this referred to as a PLAAFP, PLP or PLEP.) The PLOP describes how your child is doing now. It looks at current skills and specific areas of weakness—not just in academic subjects, but in other areas, too, such as motor and social skills. For an initial or reevaluation, the Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP bridges the evaluation results with the other IEP components.
However, it is not sufficient to report only on test scores and class titles. The present levels of performance (or PLOPs as we often refer to them) are one of the major areas of the IEP needing improvement. In the definition of an individualized education program, section 300.320, IDEA (2004) provides general guidance on what should be included. A part of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) includes a section called “Present Levels of Performance” which reflects a student’s current level of educational performance based on the student’s specific disability.
The IEP is a legal document that includes strengths and impacts of level deficiencies in designing instruction.
