This User Agreement is designed to describe the conditions of use and limits of application for Get it Got it Go! (G3), a web-based tool for teachers, parents, and others to monitor the growth and development of individual children and groups of children. This Agreement is between the REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA (The Regents) and individuals entering, managing, and reporting data with resources on this site (The Users). Additionally, this Agreement describes responsibilities and rights of the faculty and staff who developed this site and related resources (The Developers). This Agreement describes the purpose of this web-based resource, as well as: (a) copyright and user authorization for duplication and distribution; (b) data ownership; (c) privacy, security, and confidentiality protections provided to individual users and their data; (d) secondary uses of data entered into this site; (e) limitations of liability; (f) conditions associated with the termination of any agreement between The Regents and Users; and (g) ways to request and receive technical support for use of Get it Got it Go!
G3 is a web-based tool, available to parents and teachers or other educators, to provide teachers and parents with state-of-the-art assessment tools, and the infrastructure to use these tools to monitor children's growth and development and to manage the data resulting from these assessments, to generate reports summarizing the current status of groups of children or the progress over time of a single child, and to conduct online discussion of reports and possible intervention implications with constituents, colleagues, and consultants. G3 has three components, Get itan information resource) Got ita data entry and management resource), and Go!a resource for interacting with others online.
Get it provides information about a decision-making approach to assessment and intervention for individual children, the research and evaluation of individual growth and development indicators (IGDIs) and curriculum-based measures (CBM) used in this decision-making model, and access to downloadable assessment formats, stimulus materials, recording sheets and other support materials for implementing IGDI or CBM assessment procedures. Got it provides resources for creating data management resources for school districts or organizations, teachers or parents (Users), and children, and for entering and managing data collected for individual children across extended periods of time. Go! provides resources for a classroom teacher, parent, or other educator/caregiver to invite others (colleagues, supervisors, consultants) to review progress for an individual child, and to "discuss" (through online postings and chats) additional assessment and intervention options to promote better outcomes.
The Developers intend G3 resources and materials to be used to design implement, and manage a comprehensive assessment and decision-making program for infants and toddlers, preschool-aged children, elementary and secondary students. Additionally, the Developers assume that these resources and materials will support effective developmental and educational practice, and will contribute to improved outcomes for individuals and groups of children.
The use of G3 resources is currently free of charge. In the future, charging for use of G3 resources may become necessary in order to maintain the services provided to Users. The Regents and Developers reserve the right to change this pricing model with appropriate notice.
