  • Transform data into evidence.

  • Data must be used consistently as the basis for decision making.

  • Student performance results must also provide guidance that informs educators so as to allow mid-course adjustments.

  • Data feedback systems must rely on multiple sources of data.


Schools must collect and analyze data to understand the

The Big Nine

  • Meta-analysis combines the results from a number of studies to determine the average effect of a given technique.

  • Researchers translate the results of this meta-analysis into a unit of measurement referred to as the effect size.


The big nine1

The Big Nine

  • Effect size of .20 is small

  • Effect size of .50 is medium

  • Effect size of .80 is large

Planning for instruction

Planning for Instruction

  • Instructional planning needs to be thoughtful and purposeful.

  • Instructional planning is more than stringing together as many activities as can be completed in a unit of study.

  • The use of instructional strategies is to help the learner remember and apply information and skills, not just do schoolwork.

Lezotte s frequent monitoring of student progress

Lezotte’s Frequent Monitoring of Student Progress

  • The First Generation: In the effective school, student academic progress is measured frequently through a variety of assessment procedures. The results of these assessments are used to improve individual student performance and also to improve the instructional program.


Lezotte s frequent monitoring of student progress1

Lezotte’s Frequent Monitoring of Student Progress

  • The Second Generation: The use of technology will permit teachers to do a better job of monitoring their students’ progress.

  • A shift will occur from standardized norm-referenced paper-pencil tests and toward curricular-based, criterion-referenced measures of student mastery.
