SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today released a new strategy for increasing student achievement and student motivation through response to intervention data and data-based decisions in Strategy of the Week, a weekly publication highlighting the most innovative and impactful practices in education for increasing educator effectiveness and student achievement. The strategy, available to all educators through the Strategy of the Week blog, shows real educators mentoring student progress using response to intervention data, and sharing this data with students to increase student motivation.
“Helping students take ownership of their education is a key component of educator effectiveness and essential to getting 100 percent of students college and career ready,” said Chet Linton, School Improvement Network CEO and president. “By thoroughly analyzing response to intervention data to make data-based decisions and sharing it with students, educators can motivate students to engage in their education by tracking their own progress and setting benchmarks and goals. Using this response to intervention data will increase educator effectiveness, as well as create real gains in student achievement.”
Through this strategy, educators will see how gathering response to intervention data can maximize student success:
- Develop benchmarks of achievement
- Create assessments to track students’ progress towards benchmarks
- Monitor student progress proficiently
- Use data gathered to make decisions to ensure student success
