The Crucial Role of Evaluation
Proper evaluation ensures that MTSS implementation plans are grounded in good decision making. Without evaluation, every action taken by districts and schools would be just a guessing game. MTSS requires evaluation at every level of implementation on a continual basis, including:
- Installation and capacity-building efforts.
- Systems and team activities.
- School-wide practices and targeted student interventions.
Collecting the right data is critical, but simply having data is not enough to guide decision making. District and school staff must understand what the data mean as they analyze it. When teams look at data, they use that information to design improvements that will lead to success for all students.
Gather data to determine which students need additional supports and when school-wide supports need to be adjusted.
Determine how many features of school-wide MTSS are in place in your school, and the quality of their implementation.
Evaluate how well your ISD or local district can support schools implementing MTSS.
